“Good spot for photos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

A visit to Heidelberg would not be complete without a stroll on the Old Bridge. It is a great location for photos of the castle and river. The castle illuminated at night is very pretty and gives quite a romantic feel to the city.

this is a stunning bridge and a brass monkey sits on the end holding a lucky coin which you must rub for luck. walk across the bridge and see the amazing million euro homes on the other side. this area is full of lovely bars and reaustrants.

“Get a picture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Nice stop to get a couple of pictures. Nice place to get a shot of the castle, as well as a river shot and as you exit the bridge going into the Alstadt make sure you turn to the right and get a picture with the monkey....it's a tradition. Have fun!
