Tips

    The bridge over the Tauber, known as the double bridge, was built in the 14th century. Shortly before the end of the war in 1945 it was nonsensically blown up and rebuilt in the 1950s. From the bridge you have a wonderful view of the higher town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

    Right here, free parking and in about 10 minutes on a small path (right up from the parking) to the old town

    The wow factor over the Tauber - from the double bridge the view of the old town is simply breathtaking and makes you want to immerse yourself in the city above the vineyards. The towers of St. Jakob and the town hall as well as the buildings of the Medieval Crime Museum are striking.

    This double bridge is located near Rothenburg ob der Tauber in the "Lieblichen Taubertal", Baden-Württemberg.

    - the "Tauberbrücke" is also known under the name "Doppelbrücke"
    - It consists of 2 rows of arches standing on top of one another (the top nine arches are on the lower six arches)
    - The reason for this bridge construction is said to have been that the original bridge was built too short, so one simply built another bridge over the Tauber
    - it was part of the earlier trade route "Augsburg - Würzburg"
    - is a natural stone bridge
    - In 1945 the original bridge was blown up by the German troops
    - the bridge connects the old imperial city of Rothenburg ob der Tauber with its district of Leuzenbronn

    The best view of Rothenburg ob der Tauber? That is why the double bridge over the Tauber with the nearby Herrenmühle is applying. Along the Tauber, the Mühlenweg leads past small properties, the Unter den Linden beer garden and the Topplerschlösschen - one of the many hiking trails in the Taubertal near Rothenburg.

    The natural stone arch bridge made of shell limestone masonry connects the lower left and west bank of the Tauber with the right and further the town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber on the right plateau. The roadway rises towards the south-east; At the north-western end of Leuzenbronn there is therefore only an arch with a clear width of 12.5 m, which spans the Mühlenbach of the Herrenmühle. Only after a 5.0 m wide pillar does the double-decker bridge section begin in the direction of Rothenburg. This includes three large arches with clear widths of 11.5 m in the lower middle part, then 12.2 m and 11.4 m above the Tauber, which are supported on two 4.5 m wide river piers in between. In the south-eastern section beyond the river there is a 1.75 m wide pier below and an 8.5 m wide arch spanning a walkway. Two final arches with a clear width of 6.3 m and 5.6 m complete the lower row of arches.The top nine arches stand on top of the bottom six arches without any rule. There are circular arches with clear widths between 5.8 m and 6.2 m; the arrow height increases with the street gradient from 2.3 m to 3.0 m. The 45 cm thick parapets are 126 m long. The bridge used to have a width of 5.4 m, since the reconstruction in 1956 it is 6.4 m wide.
