Mini Bridges in Tübingen, Germany

I only went photo hunting this afternoon for you in Tübingen where I am to visit my Alma Mater for the weekend. Having almost forgotten about these, I was happy to re-discover the teeny-tiny bridges that line the side of the cute little alleyway Ammergasse.

Ammergasse, Tübingen, GermanyStrolling through the romantic old town of Tübingen I never tire of looking at the beautiful half-timbered houses and the cobble stone alleys. And as much as I resent the notion that Tübingen had a lot of water just because it is by the Neckar (which is no more than a creek here), I love the second little streamlet, the Ammer, that runs right through the oldest parts of town.

Often, the Ammer is redirected to go underground. On Ammergasse, it lines the street which has no car traffic. Here, little crossings lead across the Ammer to connect the small street with the houses. How unique to have to cross a bridge every time you go home!

If you have read My Mission statement, you know why I love bridges. To me they are the most universal symbol of connection, of bringing people together and overcoming anything that may seperate us. I want to present to you pictures of bridges that I really love in places that I really love on my blog every Sunday. If you have a picture of a bridge that you would like to share with my readers as a guest post, feel free to contact me!

  1. Oeh I love those little bridges. Looks like a very sweet town =) Reminds me a bit of Gouda in the Netherlands (known for the cheese), there you can also find those little bridges in the shopping street =)

      It is quite a fairytale little town. It’s the medieval city centre that does it. Outside of that there’s lots of ugly areas too – but that’s the case in every town I take it.
