Alte Brücke (Old Bridge)

The Alte Brücke (Old Bridge) was erected by Charles V in 1546 and is one of the city's oldest constructions.

The Alte Brücke connects Alt-Saarbrücken and St. Johann. Originally it consisted of 14 arches, but now only 8 remain. It was destroyed during WWII and subsequently rebuilt before being shortened in the early 1960s to make room for the urban expressway which passes through central Saarbrücken running parallel to the river.
