Great sense of history, wonderful place to stroll, day or night, many statues on the bridge and a worm's eye view of Festung Marienburg.

Statues of famous clergical men on both sides of the bridge, the main below you, the fortress on one side and the old town on the other....

a wonderful place to enjoy, get together with locals or tourists and have a wine or a beer in the sun. A perfect spot for a break while visiting Würzburg. If you want to go up to the fortress, just as I write this the short way up is blocked by work so plan some time.

One important thing: The number of glasses that the restaurants are allowed to sell outside is limited so it might take some time to get your wine.

On a cold winter's day, with a fortress on the hill on one side, and beautiful old town views on the other, and the bridge itself lined with statues of saints, this beautiful old bridge rivals the Charles Bridge in Prague

The bridge is a great place to take pictures of the town, the fortress or the bridge itself. Many opportunities to be creative. There are boat locks at the bridge also if that intrigues you. Several cafes are located at the town end of the bridge and signs to the walks to the fortress can be found there.

Very popular sightseeing spot. Have a drink from the Mainmühle Bar, enjoy the city view and meet locals and tourists from everywhere.
