Würzburg (Wuerzburg) Old Bridge in Germany

This is the photo of the Old Main Bridge of Wuerzburg as promised in my previous post. We had a visit there last Jan. 1, 2008 as seen on photo's date. here is a little info about the bridge.

Würzburg's Old Main Bridge (Alte Mainbrücke) was built 1473–1543 to replace the destroyed Romanesque bridge from 1133. It was adorned from 1730 on in two phases with well-known statues of saints and famous persons. A similar impressive bridge is the Charles Bridge in Prague.
