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 old main bridge in Würzburg is a must for all guests of Würzburg. From here, you have great views of the fortress, the Kahn, the stone castle, the Town Hall, the Cathedral and all surrounding vineyards of Würzburg. The highlight on the main bridge is the bridge reading, which is served by three stations on the ramp.

  • The mood on the bridge has liked us very much. Many people would all played with glass in hand (drinks there at the restaurants out of the window), music. Really very nice!

  • Beautiful panorama view. Very nice coffee restaurants on both ends of the bridge, Must do Drink wine and enjoy the sun going down..
  • Lovely bridge, you can see many people strolling here with relaxing mood. Cathedral, bell sound, hills, river, and many details here make this town lovely, and nice & kind people here too. Some evening there's some festival with laughing people & beer.
  • Nice experience with best wine in Wurzburg.I live next by and i cannot have enought.Highly recommend
  • Pedestrian and bicycle only bridge is a great place to hang out and watch the river, the city, and people during the day and evening. It is also used as a convenient place to eat and drink. Scattered along the bridge are eight statues of prominent local leaders from several hundred years ago.
  • On a sunny Sunday the best place to be. There is a small tavern at the entrance of the bridge where u can get wine and then sit outside on the edges of the bridge. This is beautiful and a lively place to watch people and enjoy the good weather.
