It is one of those places that is a post card picture just a bridge but what beauty and traditional construction. A must see site when in the area, a boat tour is the best way to view this.

The bridge is in a very busy part of town, very crowded with tourists. It is in good repair and has some very nice views of the river and the beautiful homes on the other side.

This is undoubtedly the busiest spot in Heidelberg. Everyone who visits Heidelberg goes there, so you cannot miss it. It is a must see. Beware the hundreds of "selfie sticks" flying around as people try to show their followers where they are. It is popular because it is different and a real glimpse of the old town and its history....

This bridge has a fine medieval touch mixing perfectly with the surrounding environment. From there you have a great view of the river, of the castle and of the old town.

Great to take a walk in the evening, when the castle has a lot of lights and you have marvelous views.

Nice to walk over the bridge and to have a good view on Heidelberg. It is usually quite busy and many people are eager to make pictures or have pictures made of themselves on this bridge.
