This amazing bridge leads into an old town like no other. AND at the end nearer the old town is a statue of a brass monkey, go ahead and put your face in it!!

Lovely to stroll across the bridge (no traffic permitted) and enjoys the views up and down the river Rhine. Some super views of the whole of Schloss Heidelberg and the old town. Best on a dry day to fully appreciate the beauty of the area.
