The Alte Brucke in Heidelberg is the landmark for the city. It was constructed in 1788 by Elector Charles Theodore. It is a very location to enjoy the beautiful Neckar River and the Castle, specially during the Christmas time.

The town is really nice. With the castle above. But the old bridge really pushes the town over the top. It's amazing. Views from above and street level are both great. I am glad I got to see it.

The bridge fits in with the town. You'll no doubt see it when you visit. Is it a must see? I don't know. It's a bridge. There are some good photo ops there, but that's just like everywhere in Germany.

Very nice place, green, romantic, historic places and beautiful shops. Don´t miss the monkey statue, have a photo, you can place your head inside! It is at the entrance of the bridge.

Wonderful views of the castle and and the river from the most famous bridge in Heidelberg. There are some massive properties on the other side of the river.

This bridge is located on the east side of the old town. You can visit the castle, walk across the bridge and have a coffee or beer nearby.

It is one of those places that is a post card picture just a bridge but what beauty and traditional construction. A must see site when in the area, a boat tour is the best way to view this.

The bridge is in a very busy part of town, very crowded with tourists. It is in good repair and has some very nice views of the river and the beautiful homes on the other side.

This is undoubtedly the busiest spot in Heidelberg. Everyone who visits Heidelberg goes there, so you cannot miss it. It is a must see. Beware the hundreds of "selfie sticks" flying around as people try to show their followers where they are. It is popular...More

This bridge has a fine medieval touch mixing perfectly with the surrounding environment. From there you have a great view of the river, of the castle and of the old town.
