A excellent place to walk along the River Main. Many of the river cruise ships are docked here and the walk is an easy way to get from ship to town and enjoy the picturesque river as you stroll to town.

Recommend you get your exercise walking or running by the river. You can travel on one side, cross a bridge, return on the other side of the river, and then return to the start via a second bridge. Both bridges are worth viewing.

Except for a few statues the bridge really does not offer anything except a path across the river. It is accessed from the Main Street passing through town.

Take a leisurely stroll along the river, enjoy the view of the fortress, snap a picture or two and watch visitors come and go from the river boats. It makes a nice hour or so break from hectic sightseeing if you have the time to...More
