Beautiful views on the Neckar and the town

Very nice gate opens the bridge. From the bridge you have a nice panaramic view on the Neckar river and the townd. Also the schloss is a very good view from here.

Yes the towers are lovely and make for a great photo op, but the real attraction is going out to the middle of the bridge and looking at both halves of the city, just beautiful. When we visited there was a couple taking their wedding photos on the bridge and I can understand why.

Such a beautiful town. We didn't venture on this side of town, but had great views of it from the castle and bridge. Very picturesque.

With nice views of the Nekar River and H. castle, this ancient bridge also offers a funny bronze monkey statue that you can put your head into for photos. Just three blocks from the town center.

I have many photos of this fantastic entrance into the city. I have been to the city twice in eight years and still find everything wonderful.

Worth walking to see the stone bridge that crossing the Neckar River. It connects the Old City with the eastern part of the Neuenheim district of the city on the opposite bank. One of the best-known landmarks and tourist destinations is usually bustling with groups taking photos.

This is on the old bridge and hard not to miss. This was the scene ofr our new years eve celebration and it was packed with people celebrating with their foreworks in an ad hoc manner. Not for thr feint hearted but the Heiligenberg is beautifully set and a photo stop for sure...

As you cross the River Neckar on the Altebrucke you pass through this impressive twin towered gateway to the Old City. It has a very colored past as it served as a jail for criminals and a debtors lockup! This is one of the postcard photos you will need to take for your memory album. All the tourists do it!!!

All tourists to Heidelberg should take a walk out on this very historic bridge. You get close up to the Neckar River, and also have a wonderful view back on the town and the castle.
