The Old Main Bridge in Würzburg, Bavaria

The Alte Mainbrücke, called in English as the Old Main Bridge is a bridge that crosses the Main River in Würzburg (written in English as Wuerzburg) in the state of Bavaria, Germany. It was first mentioned at around 1120. It was said to be destroyed in 1342 by St. Mary Magdalene’s flood.

The one that stands now was built on 1473–1543 during the Medieval times. If you happened to visit Prague in Czech Republic, you can see its twin bridge named Charles Bridge.

This is a very amazing architecture if you are trying to imagine that during those times, there were still no modern equipments to use in building like what we have now.

Here are images taken during my second visit last August 2010.
