After years of housing thousands of padlocks, Paris has removed all of them out of concern for the structure and safety of the bridge. It is still a gorgoeus bridge but the funky vibe with the locks is definitely gone.

The love lock bridge is full of locks, in spite of the ban, with messages of love written on all of them in a variety of languages. It was clear that some people clearly came prepared with a monogramed lock or a unique looking lock,...More

I often stay in an apartment close to this pedestrian bridge and use it to get from the Left Bank to the Right Bank, often en route to the nearby Louvre. Prior to 2008 when the love locks phase started, I found this to be...More

This bridge is close to the Palais of Louvre on the River Seine and is a lovers bridge where padlocks used to be locked on the bridge to signify love for one another. Today it is no longer possible to do this anymore.

As a pedestrian bridge it is the perfect place to take in the views and have a look around. Even without all the padlocks it’s still a place to show love and there are padlocks on the lamp posts.

Great bridge for a stroll with good views. We left a padlock on one of the lights. Padlocks are around €5 to buy from the bridge.

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.
