The Double Bridge (early fourteenth century) is a pleasant walk outside of Rothenburg. It is found to the west of the walled town (use Kobolzeller Gate, but this is a steep downhill path). It was fortified just after the devastating earthquake of 1356 and formed...More

I did not walk down to this bridge, but it was lovely to look down into the valley at it from above.

The story of the bridge in WWII made this a must see. It's an interesting design, one that I've never seen before. There isn't much foot traffic this way, so it's off the path. Nice walk through town, gardens, and neighborhoods to get down here....More

I don't know why not more focus is put on this site. For me, one of the most beautiful landmarks in Rothenburg, and one that is not full with tourists. Nice view to the walls, and a good place for a picnic.

Amazing to see a double bridge that was not built by the Romans. well worth seeing not many examples throughout the world of ancient double bridges.

If ever a firework is announced over Rothenburg walk here and enjoy the fireworks coming straight at you. Great view of the old town from here.

This double stone bridge looks more than a aqueduct from the Romans. It was probably constructed in 1330. The bridge spanned over the river Tauber with a 4 meter wide roadway and a 1 meter wide side walk. In 1791 it was repaired after the...More

The bridge is a beautiful sight, but so is the walk to it. Although the bridge is not anything extravagant, I recommend taking the walk down the hill to see it. Walking past what looked like grapevines, beautiful flowers, and strolling locals, you turn around...More

Great story from this bridge when the Allied forces negotiated to save the town upon the retreat of the Nazi forces.

Going to this bridge does not allow you to see it as well as you can from a distance. I was able to get some great shots from the wall behind the Crime Museum where there is a little lookout on the wall. It is...More
