Alte Mainbruecke, Wurzburg

4.7
Constructed between the 15th and 16th centuries, Alte Mainbruecke serves as one of Wurzburg's iconic landmarks. The 185 m (607 ft) arched causeway spans the river Main in the heart of the old city. In the distance, you'll spy the town's spires on one side and the Marienburg Fortress on the other. The 12 detailed, sandstone statues of saints adorning the length of the bridge were added during the Baroque era. The structure was partially destroyed by retreating German troops in 1945. Its faithful reconstruction used materials from a nearby quarry. Use our Wurzburg day trip site to add Alte Mainbruecke and other attractions to your Wurzburg vacation plans.

  • The Bridge is well worth a Visit. But in fine Weather you are now only close to close and have to queue for a very long time if you want a Stop. There are also other beautiful Places in Würzburg, where things are less stressful.

  • The Würzburg Bridge is one of the symbols of the city and is a must for the atmosphere that is breathed in through it and for the panorama that can be noticed in both directions: on one side we find the imposing fortress of Marienberg and on the other the Dome of St. Kilian That blends in with the Rathaus. The Bridge is stone and there are several statues of saints on the sides; I recommend sipping a good glass of wine in one of the nearby places and enjoying the sparkling atmosphere of Würzburg.
