Definitely worth a walk over to the bridge. Make sure you visit the town on one side and head up Philosophers Way on the other!

Very nice bridge, during the day and at night when illuminated. You can do the philosophers walk and get a nice view on this bridge.

Also pretty cold today! Cross this beautiful old bridge and listen to the musicians play as you do. What a fantastic setting for them! Very magical.

Walked from the University to the bridge. Great sight, the castle looks fantastic and sunset over the river looks good. Visited the old town afterwards.

The view of the castle from this bring is fantastic. We were there both early morning and evening. The sense of history, if you can block out the modern buildings is amazing. This is true Heidelburg.

Old and elegant above the river. Good view of the castle in the night. Listen to the flow of water underneath.
