The bridge is very well maintained even if a bit dark. The view from the bridge is very nice in both directions and coming out the old town is extremely nice. A visit is suggested especially for the part following the bridge.

A colleague of mine showed me this spot. I was really surprised about the beautifull town. Especially the bridge, old tower and castle are so impressive. Really happy that I've been there.

Holzbrucke is a very attractive wooden bridge over the river Limmat. It is an old bridge with a charm of its own. You can do down the staris and walk along the Limmat Promenade which is along the river Limmat.
