Old Bridge Heidelberg

Alte Brücke Heidelberg
Alte Brücke Heidelberg bei Nacht

The Heidelberg old bridge (Karl-Theodor bridge), leads over the river Neckar in Heidelberg and connects the old town (Altstadt) with the Neckar banks, the eastern part of the district Neuenheim. A panoramic walk from the hotel Hirschgasse leads you past the Heidelberg Nepomuk memorial and then directly across the Old Bridge into the heart of the old city. It was built under the regency of elector Karl Theodor in 1788 and was the 9th bridge that had been constructed at this place. Today the bridge is one of the most famous sights in Heidelberg. On the old bridge our famous love story with the innkeepers daughter and the aristocrat Johann von Soest took place, which brought our Hirschgasse first time into the public light.
