It's a crime if you don't photograph yourself at the bruecke upon visiting the city. It's mostly crowded. Good place to be. The melting point of diversity.

Beautiful scenic bridge with historic statues. Bridge is closed to traffic, pedestrian only, stay off the middle and on the sidewalks to avoid being mowed down by determined bicyclists.

Full of people enjoying their hot wines. I strongly suggest you to watch big river boats when they are transferred to an upper level of the river.

We passed the bridge go and back to old town from our hotel. When get into the bridge, Dom is just in fron of us. Many people enjoy a glass of wine and some finger foods on it. Sometimes they block our walking pass.

This 14th century bridge is very similar to Prague's famous Charles bridge. It is the oldest bridge over the River Main but the real draw is the views of the Marienberg fortress and the Kappele. The bridge itself is noteworthy with the many statues of saints and pasts bishops of Wurzburg .

There are many beautiful, original and reconstructed bridges in Europe, but the Alte Brucke has its own charm

For the multitude of photographic opportunities, you should not miss this bridge. Unlike some other scenic bridges, this one is not under renovation or scaffolding. Great statues along sides.

The views are great from the bridge, also for people watching...getting a beer or glass of wine. It's also a great way to get across the river to the other side! ;)

It is a quaint old bridge with statues of former bishops of Wurzburg. Fantastic views down the river and up to the fortress. Much prefer the Charles Bridge in Prague though.

It's just a bridge, I don't see why it's an attraction (ok, the history). Lots of people milling around drinking wine.
