Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Bavaria / Franconia / Lower Franconia / Wurzburg / Alte Mainbruecke
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.

Alte Mainbruecke Reviews
Hier versammeln sich jung und alt am Abend und trinken stehend auf der ganzen Brücke etwas aus der Bar. Die Sicht auf die Stadt, den Main, die Burg und das Käppele sind es alleine schon wert mal hier ... more »Here, young and old gather in the evening and drink something from the bar standing all over the bridge. The view of the city, the Main, the castle and the Käppele are worth it alone to be here. However, the bridge itself is also very worth seeing! In the evenings, live music often plays here.
Was gibt es da zu sagen? Muss man einfach gesehen haben! Einen Wein trinken auf der Brücke ist Pflicht!! Soooo schön! more »What is there to say? You just have to see! Drinking a wine on the bridge is mandatory!! Soooo beautiful!
