Alte Mainbruecke, Wurzburg
(4.7/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Constructed between the 15th and 16th centuries, Alte Mainbruecke serves as one of Wurzburg's iconic landmarks. The 185 m (607 ft) arched causeway spans the river Main in the heart of the old city. In the distance, you'll spy the town's spires on one side and the Marienburg Fortress on the other. The 12 detailed, sandstone statues of saints adorning the length of the bridge were added during the Baroque era. The structure was partially destroyed by retreating German troops in 1945. Its faithful reconstruction used materials from a nearby quarry. Put Alte Mainbruecke at the forefront of your travel plans using our Wurzburg vacation planner.

  • For the multitude of photographic opportunities, you should not miss this bridge. Unlike some other scenic bridges, this one is not under renovation or scaffolding. Great statues along sides. 
  • 這裡是維爾茨堡有名的舊橋,名字是美因橋,橋下的美因河是城堡重要的河流,她屬於萊茵河的支流,對德國人來說萊茵河是像父親的河流,發源地在瑞士阿爾卑斯山區、於荷蘭入海,但最精華段卻在德國,這座美因橋有 180米長,共有六個橋墩,每個橋墩左右各有雕像,是十二位名人及聖者,所以又叫「十二聖人橋」,這些18世紀的雕像作品曾毀於戰火之中,我們見到的是複製品,這裡除了可以看到美因河畔的葡萄園,橋上還可以遠眺瑪麗恩...  more »

  • It's one of a kind in Germany. When there is good weather you can get a glass of wine directly sold out of a window and mingle on the bridge. Very friendly atmosphere, very nice location, not too crowded. Along the riverside nearby (less than 100 meters) are several locations with outstanding food and fine drinks (beer).
  • Nice place, rather expensive. I prefer to get a glass of wine there, maybe bun with 3 Nuernberger sausages and hang around. If on budget, walk off the bridge towards town, to nearest supermarket, grab bear or bottle of wine, and get back to river for nice picknick
  • Stunning bridge over the river Main, you can watch people kayak and transverse the river course.
  • Really liked the vibe, great view of the city and many giant fishes in the water. really brought the inner child of me :) one of the personal highlight in Würtzburg
  • Nice historical Bridger with a very good view other the 'Main'
