Another popular bridge is the Pont Des Arts, which differs from many other bridges in that it is constructed of metal and is entirely pedestrian. With one of the most stunning views in all of Paris this is a top hang-out and pick-me-up zone in...More

Well, this bridge was famous for its love locks. But now authorities have banned the locks and bridge has anti-lock plexiglass barriers. The bridge is still beautiful and worth a visit even without locks. Very close to Louvre. There are benches on the bridge, so...More

We crossed this bridge a couple of times. No longer the possibility to fix locks as a sign of love but this is now better for safety issues. A great place to see various artists and to enjoy a fantastic view over the river Seine....More

All over the world, you can see gates, bridges etc… with locks. I don’t really think it’s all that nice. I like the views that the bridges here in Paris have to offer.

Now there is a Perspex clear finish so no one can put locks on the bridge. The other more traditional bridges are worth a look, unfortunately I can not recommend this one anymore.

You cannot. The city has removed the chain fencing from the bridge and replaced it with glass. There are larges signs displayed asking that visitors not to put locks on the bridge, as they were damaging it.

It's a pedestrian bridge linking Saint Germain (Left bank) to the Louvre (Right bank). It's a public space and is open 24/7. You can also enjoy the walk on both bank of the river, particularly the one on left bank going to... More
