Alte Mainbruecke, Wurzburg

4.7
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. Use our Wurzburg day trip site to add Alte Mainbruecke and other attractions to your Wurzburg vacation plans.

  • Characteristic pedestrian bridge, which deserves a walk, which crosses the river Main, from which you can enjoy the panorama of the castle on one side and the Duomo on the other.

  • We visited Wurzburg City on the day of the sky and when it came to rain, we visited the Alte Mainbruecke Bridge or Old Bridge, even the Main water to go Marienberg Fortrees is a beautiful old bridge. There are 12 statues of the Buddha and the Saints along the bridge on one side to see the church and the other side, the Marienberg Fortrees are an important point to visit.
