The old bridge of Heidelberg is officially known as the Carl Theodor Bridge after Prince Elector Carl Theodor. After a major flood destroyed the last wooden bridge in the city the Prince was prompted to build a more substantial stone bridge. The stone itself was taken from the Neckar valley. The bridge connects the old city to the banks of the river and of course gives one of the most stunning view of the city!

Major attractions here at the bridge:

  • The bronze monkey with the mirror, west of the bridge gate. Symbolizes the fact that neither the city dwellers nor the ones living out of the city are better than the other.
  • The sculpture dedicated to Prince Theodor
  • The sculpture in honor of the Roman Goddess Minerva
  • Rat figurines in metal
