  • This is a very pretty bridge with nice views from the rive of both riverbanks. Unfortunately the facade was under renovation while I was there, but having seen pictures, I know it’s pretty!  more »
  • Unfortunately it is in work so very limited interest. Buy a card mailing is better! Access to the bridge that allows to have a magnificent view of the Castle d ´Heidelberg

  • Like, I remember the trip we made in late 2001, with the Association for local history Nordheim E.v. on the holy mountain. The facility has surprised us very positively really also due to your size.
