“It is a must at sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Whenever I am visiting Wuerzberg, this is a must place to visit, regardless of weather. Great ambiance, local residents mixing with travelers, wine by the glas can be purchased at the Muehle, the on or the other musician busker is joining sometimes in the evening .... and not to forget the view and the water of the river Main, as it cascades down under you with its constant flowing sound. This place and its atmosphare is always my highlight while visiting Wuerzburg.

“Center of the action”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Bridge itself is okay but the energy on it, people drinking wine and music playing, was excellent. The afternoon sunshine made it a perfect hangout.

The view from this bridge is charming and sums up the feel of the medieval city heart of the city. Not to be missed.

“A must see in Wurzburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We did the walking tour as described by Rick Steves. The Alte Mainbrucke was one of the highlights. The bridge has a romantic feel about it. It is adorned with several large statues that provide for many photo ops. You can even grab a glass of wine to enjoy while you stroll the bridge.

No vehicle are allowed on the bridge so it never feels crowded even though there are hundreds of people enjoying it. I recommend hiking up to the fortress to capture a great photo of the bridge and Old town.

“This is a beautiful and lively Bridge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

If you aim your visit for the second weekend in September you will find the Bridge transformed into a trad German eating and drinking area with trestles tables and benches and stalls selling wine, beer and sausages and live bands. The whole city centre is en fete (what's the German for that?).
