The bridge. Feb 02, 2017
Die Alte Brucke (the Old Bridge) was built in stone between 1786 and 1788 by prince elector Karl Theodor. The preceeding bridges were built in wood and had been destroyed by floods, fire and ice. During WWII the bridge was destroyed by German soldiers, but it was quickly rebuilt in 1947.

On the southern end of the bridge there is a Medieval gate named Bruckentor with two cylindrical towers. This gate was originally part of the town walls.

When I visited Heidelberg the bridge was covered with scaffoldings, so I didn' t take any pics of it. On this picture you can see the bridge from afar.

Hope the scaffoldings gone when we visit. such a pain to want to see something then discover it is being restored. Still I suppose it has to be done.
