If you've visited the Cathedral, then the Hohenzollern Bridge is just a short 5 min walk away, and worth a look. The south side is covered with Padlocks [the north side less so]. It is fascinating seeing the variety of locks and wondering about the...More
We walked from the cathedral side over the bridge, crossed under on the main road and then walked back. Nice views both up and down the Rhine, and the views from outside the Hyatt towards the city centre are some of the best in the...More
