Blown away as to how old this structure is. A lesser known structure compared to Chapel Bridge but worth visiting nevertheless. You can combine a visit to this place with having a meal at one of the many cafes that are situated by the water...More

We visited this bridge on our walking tour and although its less famous than Chapel Bridge, its still no less significant in the city. The Spreuer Bridge was built in 1408 and has 67 paintings dating from 1626 to 1635 representing the "Dance of Death”....More

There is so much to see in town. Make sure to enjoy the paintings and history behind this structure. Amazing the paintings are still in great shape!

While this bridge is less impressive of the two looking from a distance, it is the more impressive to walk across. Make sure you look up when you are walking across to see the pannels,

The artwork (dance macabre) on this covered bridge make it well worth the stroll. I believe this is the older of the 2 remaining covered bridge, and this is a much shorter span near the spillway. Nice views of the city wall as well.

This is a lovely walk from Spreuer Bridge up to the towers and down to Chapel Bridge. Each of the archways are decorated. It would have helped if I had used my translating app so I could read them.
