The Tauber Bridge is a historic road bridge that spans the Tauber Valley west of the town center of the Middle Franconian town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber in Bavaria. It carries a local link road to Leuzenbronn and the Tauber Valley Way, having a 4.0-meter-wide roadway and a 1.0-meter-wide footpath. The double bridge with its two rows of arches, one on top of the other, was built some time around 1330. It lies at the foot of the southwestern valley side below Rothenburg. In terms of building activity, it is known to be renovated in 1791, after the four upper arches had collapsed the year before. In 1925 the eastern approach to the bridge was widened. Twenty years later, the structure was blown up by German troops. Rebuilding took an entire year and was reopened on 10 November 1956.
It’s a great place to walk by and outside the city walls.
