    Walking in the old town

    by toonsarah Updated Jun 23, 2015

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Altstadt is largely closed to vehicles, apart from necessary deliveries (from what I observed), making it a pleasure to explore on foot. Furthermore there are plentiful signs at every junction pointing you in the direction of all the main sights. And when you reach those sights, many have small signs fixed to the wall like these, explaining something of what you’re seeing. OK, these are in German only, but at least you can be sure of which church or other building you have reached! And in some places I noticed much more detailed information on display boards which usually did include English as well as German (for an example see my third photo).

    Pontoon bridge

    by Nemorino Updated Jun 19, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From 1819 to 1945 there was a pontoon bridge across the Rhine River, where the ferry boat now runs.

    It consisted of 36 floating pontoons, two or three of which had to me moved out of the way every time a ship wanted to pass.

    I always thought pontoon bridges were temporary things, put up by an advancing army and dismantled soon afterwards, but this one was used for 126 years before it was finally destroyed at the end of the Second World War.

    Mini tourist train

    Using the mini train cost us 4 euro per person. The little train departs from the docking area of the boats and goes around the old town with commentry in English and German.
