Great place to be

It was indeed great to learn more about history of this bridge as well as Napoleon wars in the area. The price is worth visiting including taking some good pictures for the souvenir. This is a must do while in Heidelberg

Historic Bridge

The Old Bridge is a historic bridge located near to the Aldstadt in Heidelberg. This bridge is very picturesque and is well worth visiting when in the town and is great for photo opportunities.

Go to the bridge, make a picture with the castle and you in front. I know, but it is a must do thing. Especially at the evening the light is fine and the mood of the people around you are good.

This bridge was closed for motorized traffic, so it is a nice pedestrian area. The look from the sides is nice, but also a walk across it is worth it. The tower / gate is amazing.

Part of a visit to Heidelberg
May 2020
The Karl Theodor Bridge, better known as the "Old Bridge", is a sandstone bridge over the Neckar in Heidelberg. It connects the old town with the opposite bank of the Neckar.

In the center of the old town, with the bridge gate and the monkey bridge, the romantic, baroque bridge is part of a visit to Heidelberg and can be easily combined with a walk to the Philosophenweg and the Thingstätte.
Lots of tourists, of course. But also a beautiful sight and a beautiful view of the castle and the old town

The view from the bridge is almost as good as view from the castle. During the rainy day when we were there it even more romantic. Try to be there around sunset to get the full effect.

Great Walk and View
Feb. 2020
On our most recent trip to Heidelberg my wife and I stayed at a small hotel directly across the Neckar River from Heidelberg's Old City and a block away from the Karl Theodor Bridge. We enjoyed strolling across the pedestrian and bicyclist only Old Bridge with views up and down the river and of both the Old City and the 19th century residential part of the city we stayed in. It's a great motivation to take a walk!

Such scenic views from this bridge
Feb. 2020 • Friends
It’s definitely an old bridge, but it still holds a warm place in modern day Germany and to Heidelberg. Enter the bridge and be sure end.

The entrance isn’t much to look at, but it’s a doorways to a special and beautiful town beyond it.

There are many great views from the bridge of the town and houses, hills and river.

Cute narrow streets in town, bicycles everywhere instead of cars since cars wouldn’t fit down some of the narrow pathways.

It’s very charming and I can see the draw to this town.
