The day we visited, scaffolding was being erected for some refurbishment. The gate is only something to look at. It's not like you can do anything, like go up in it. Save your legs for the castle if you are inclined!

I don't know why there's a picture of the Alte Brucke gate for the Heiligenberg, which is on the other side of the river and many hundreds of meters higher. You can get there by foot (or even bicycle if you're ambitious) via the Philosophenweg,...More

This entire mountain (hill) is great. So much cultural history here, not to mention great terrain for hiking and trail running. This place is one of my favorite in Heidelberg.

Nice walk across the bridge into Heidelberg under the double tower entryway. We were there before Christmas walking around, enjoying the markets and photos at night. Try the restaurants facing the water.

Very nice gate opens the bridge. From the bridge you have a nice panaramic view on the Neckar river and the townd. Also the schloss is a very good view from here.

Such a beautiful town. We didn't venture on this side of town, but had great views of it from the castle and bridge. Very picturesque.

With nice views of the Nekar River and H. castle, this ancient bridge also offers a funny bronze monkey statue that you can put your head into for photos. Just three blocks from the town center.
