Owner description: This beautiful 18th-century bridge connects the two sides of the Neckar River.

This is a great walking bridge and we have done that many times to take photos of the castle and old town. On our last visit we somehow thought we could drive on it. Wrong! We got to the other side and found it blocked. We were the only car. My friend had to figure out how to turn around and get off the bridge....fast. So, enjoy the views but take no car.

Thank Bob R

This is a lovely old bridge and also provides great views of Heidelberg and the river.

There are also some lovely statues on the bridge.

Nice to visit.

Not exactly the Ponte Vecchio but a pleasant old bridge with gate towers that make a good picture against the Old Town. Nice walk over so fulfils it's function of not making you swim the river - good views back to the town / castle from opposite bank.

A pleasant way to spend 30 minutes or so.
