This bridge used to be known among the tourists as the "love bridge", because of the many love locks that were attached to it (mostly done by tourists). Even though I though it was pathetic (honestly), I was a wee bit upset when they removed them because I though it was one of the only few original stuffs in Paris,... More

This spot was formally the Lovelock Bridge. All the locks have been removed. It was definitely a site to behold but it also was not very aesthetic, considering you are in Paris. The bridge is an awesome spot to sit down and sketch the scenery or to have a quick picnic. The views are quite beautiful!

This used to be the love lock bridge in Paris. But be forewarned, it no longer is that way. They have come through and removed all the locks as some of the panels started falling and there were fears of danger to boats and other passerby. Now the bridge is interesting for its history, but otherwise unremarkable. There are other... More

There were so many locks on here when we visited. I cannot believe how many there were, locks on top of locks. I can see the problem they caused by adding extra weight to the bridge. Throwing the keys in the river is ridiculous to me, I don't think littering is romantic. The bride itself has some nice views.

So glad that the locks have been removed from the Pont des Art - this is no longer a romantic gesture and it spoils the look of many bridges not just in Paris but everywhere. The glass panels that now adorn the bridge are lovely.

This was such a beautiful experience when we were able to still lock our love locks :) It was a truly memorable experience! So Glad to have done it when it was still an option :)

Visited Pont des Arts this August. Had wanted to attach a 'love lock' but had read that they had all been taken down due to the weight becoming too heavy, so didn't take one with me. Never mind, thought, we would just go and have a look at this famous bridge. The locks have been moved, but only to the... More

Unfortunately due to heavy weigh of locks, the govt. removed them but you can still find them at the end of bridge. better to see it when you visit louvre museum as it is near to it. One should visit this place as... More

This bridge is special. Locks from lovers with promises of eternal love. Now the padlocks are concentrated to end of bridge. Very special place and easy to find a kodak moment.

This is the famous bridge where lovers seal their commitment with a padlock. Except you're not allowed to put them on anymore because they are weighing the bridge down. Very romantic, nonetheless!
