“Picturesque bridge”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

A stone bridge with several statues, that brings in mind Prague's famous bridge in a smaller scale.Erected in place of an old Roman bridge in 1473, it was fully completed in 1703. The statues were added around 1730. Up to 1886 Alte Mainbrücke (Old Main Bridge) was the only river crossing in Würzburg. It's the oldest bridge over Main river. In the summer of 2010, this bridge served as a filming location for the adventure film "The Three Musketeers". Always full, especially with tourists, it's a perfect spot to watch busy Main River - Small boats, big cruise ships, seagulls, ducks.....you may stand there and enjoy the traffic and the wonderful view around. Old town buildings and Churches and spectacular Marienberg Fortress on the hill, vineyards, etc.etc. There are bars next to the bridge and if you don't want to sit down there, just take your wine, beer or juice (in a glass not in plastic!) and enjoy the unique view. The taste will be quite different!!!

“Lovely old bridge across the Main”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

The views from the bridge are beautiful from both sides. The old Mainmühle stands right next to the bridge.

“Bridge of life leading to centre of city”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

Here you can see local life any evening or weekend, with buskers, and people meeting for drinks. Lovely views of the Main river with pleasure boats and long distance cruises - at last saw a Viking cruise in action - looked quote good.
