Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Bavaria / Franconia / Lower Franconia / Wurzburg / Alte Mainbruecke
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 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.
