As an ex army engineer was very interested in the design and how I could knock it down!! Very impressive structure.

Walked over the bridge just to see the other side of the Rhine and to visit the viewing tower. An interesting walk being so close to the trains as they pass by you.

Wonderful views from any part of it and at any hour in time, day or night. The locks are nice but not necessarily in the benefit of the bridge or the view, but anyhow interesting to see. The experience is even more interesting when knowing...More

If you've visited the Cathedral, then the Hohenzollern Bridge is just a short 5 min walk away, and worth a look. The south side is covered with Padlocks [the north side less so]. It is fascinating seeing the variety of locks and wondering about the...More

It's nice to walk along and you get a nice view of the cathedral when you are on the bridge- otherwise it's just a bridge!

This bridge appears on most the the typical Cologne photos, combined with the Dom (Cologne Cathedral). Definitely a photo-point for those seriously infected with the photography.

There are thousands of padlocks attached to this, 409 metre in length, pedestrian and railway bridge. I’ve seen these in many places before, including Budapest, Buenos Aires, Guangzhou, Yekaterinburg, Paris, Prague, and more. Of my travels, Cologne’s Hohenzollern Bridge and Paris’ Pont des Arts Bridge...More

Has a nice view of the Rhine river, the city and the cathedral. The padlocks are much like in other cities but immense in number. Definitely a cool thing to see

We went to a little shop down a side street as you go down to the river walk off one of the squares. The padlock and engraving was 9 euros!! Dont go to the shops right near the cathedral they are very expensive look around!

Hello Holly, I would also recommend bringing your own. Just make sure that it is fairly sturdy. There are so many locks already attached, that flimsy ones are apt to be smashed and lost. People are now resorting to... More
