Old Stone Bridge, Regensburg
Categories: Bridges, Tourist Spots
The fact that the 12th-century Old Stone Bridge is still standing is a tribute to medieval engineering. The bridge above the Danube links the old town with Stadtamhof. Its Bruckmandl statue was erected in the middle of the 16th century. He is said to symbolize the city's freedoms and its emancipation from the control of the Bishop. Be sure to take some photos here on what is arguably the emblem of Regensburg.

The bridge is now extensively renovated (estimated time: 10 years, compared to the complete construction with the simplest of technical means: 11 years) and - it must be said that unfortunately so - up under the eyes of monument protection. The new (bloody expensive!) Granite bridge railing look like the concrete barriers on the highway. And the question arises spontaneously: the complete Regensburg old town is paved. Is the old plaster to see why a new floor covering must be applied here, which work as Mr and Mrs Müller the terrace would have renovated "chic and modern" significantly affect the unrenovated portion of the bridge? For this aberration is a point deduction. Worth seeing, really the interactive exhibition in the world heritage site visitor centre is a visit to the historic Wurstkuchl right down to the shore... and (even if it's no cheaper fun).show original
