This is a very old bridge and it's beautiful as well especially at night. Don't forget to stroll across it or just spend sometime enjoying the water views and the boats passing under the bridge.

Not much to share..an old bridge. 5 min and done. Walk and talk. Central and easy to find. Nice city, take the castle if you need to prioritise.

Nice old bridge, but actually was better to look at from the castle or up from the hill than to actually walk along it. When we went out on it, we very quickly left since it is just a bridge when you are on it....More

We walked across the bridge to take picture. The are beautiful gates before you cross and the other side are lined with magnificent old homes.

Great place to capture some panoramic photo of the area, including the castle. Also find some interesting music being played.

This is one of the most visited places in Heidelberg. You have an excellent view on the castle and the river Neckar. In the evening you can catch the right light for good pictures.

Walking across this bridge that notes the high water marks on one tower denotes the times the water nearly flooded the city. It is a good picture spot and there are many restaurants and pubs nearby to enjoy a beer and people watch.
