This is a lovely old bridge with gorgeous, panoramic views of Heidelberg. It is a nice place for a leisurely stroll after dinner.

A must see in Heidelberg. You really have to walk across the whole bridge and just take in the views to get a feeling of where you are!

The old bridge in Heidelberg is looking better than ever, with it's classic spires and comfortable walking path. A must-see in town.

This is certainly Heidelberg's second most famous landmark after the castle on the hill. The bridge has played a central role in the city's history for many centuries. Blown up by the German Army toward the end of WWII (the Yanks came down BOTH sides of the Neckar making that a dumb move) it was rebuilt quickly and has graced the landscape ever since. Be sure to take a look at yourself in the mirror held by the Bridge Monkey on the city side.

Very neat structure surrounded by a lot of nice restaurants and gasthouses.
If you cross the bridge you can get a wonderful picture of the Castle overlooking the city....and you can climb up the Philosopher's Weg (Walk).
