    From the north, you can reach the interesting Old Town of Limburg through this bridge gate on the old Lahn bridge. From the bridge you have a beautiful view of the Limburg Cathedral.

    The bridge gate on the old bridge Lahn is always nice. From here you have the most beautiful view of the cathedral.

    The Alte Lahnbrücke is a bridge from the Middle Ages over a shallow section of the Lahn in Limburg. The bridge was part of the early medieval Via Publica trade route and is the only bridge from the 14th century to have survived.
    Together with the Limburg Cathedral, it is the most popular photo motif in the city. It also has six arches and a stone figure of St. John of Nepomuk - the patron saint of the bridges.
    During the Thirty Years' War, the customs house with the bridge tower was destroyed by the Swedes - but later rebuilt. The bridge was also significantly destroyed during the Second World War, but was then rebuilt, partly modernized.
    Absolutely worth seeing!

    Either you have to use the road to cross it. You can only push on the hard shoulder.

    The position of the highlight is on the bridge, the picture shows the Lahnschleuse.
    That’s garbage.

    Over the old Lahn bridge directly into the old town of Limburg.
    When crossing, you have a great view of the cathedral, the symbol of the city of Limburg.

    The gate on the bridge is the entrance gate to the romantic old town of Limburg. Next to the tower there is a beach bar with lounge chairs in the sand and cool drinks.

    The old bridge with its mighty arched pillars looks like it was from Roman times.

    Nice tower on the bridge. Driving through is allowed, only pushing is allowed on the right or left.
