    It is made of Neckar sandstone and was built in the 18th century by Elector Karl Theodor: the famous Old Bridge. It is one of the last great examples of classic bridge construction in stone. It connects the old town with the banks of the Neckar at the eastern end of the Neuenheim district. The predecessors of today's Old Bridge were made of wood. Since they were repeatedly destroyed by wars and floods, Elector Karl Theodor had a stone bridge across the river build (1786-1788).

    Very nice bridge - next to the castle (well seen from the bridge) probably the attraction in Heidelberg. Accordingly, always quite well filled with tourists.

    The Karl Theodor Bridge, better known as Old Bridge, is a bridge over the Neckar in Heidelberg. It connects the old town with the opposing banks of the Neckar at the eastern end of Neuenheim district. The Old Bridge from Neckar valley sandstone was built in 1788 under Elector Karl Theodor as a total ninth bridge at this point. Today it is one of the most famous sights and landmarks of Heidelberg. It is used for pedestrian and bicycle traffic.
    200 m long / 7 m wide.

    Direct access to Heidelberg's Old Town - cyclists should rather dismount as many pedestrians are on the way

    Off the bridge is officially a bike path and also behind the bridge you can ride the bike through the old town. In practice, however, you should push better. The tourists walk like blind chickens across the bridge. Accidents are inevitable.

    The Heiligenberg tower usually has a beautiful view of the old town and the castle. But you have to climb up to this tower on foot or by bike - there is no tourist swing!

    This is a double highlight - but I don't think komoot pointed it out with a software bug!
    Despite everything, the most beautiful bridge in the whole Neckar!

    I have now visited Heidelberg several times. Always nice, especially now, as there are few tourists.

    The Vetter bridal outfit also comes in very tasty dark wheat and the food is also highly recommended.
