Though the city removed most of the lock on this bridge it doesn't change the beauty or sheer magnificence of the vista and surrounding architecture. There are still a few areas on the side where you can add a lock and the have featured different artiest work where the main set of locks were and there's nothing like gazing out... More

Took my wife here to take in the love lock bridge. The atmosphere is lovely, as you are on the Seine, and have a great view of a couple of parts of Paris. The only downer is that the City of Paris has started to remove a lot of the locks, and there are several ugly wooden panels covering several... More

Off my bucketlist to see this love lock bridge.Unfortunately did not have any locks with us nor we did not intend to buy one( there will be some guy walking around selling locks). Best part of the trip is this memory will always be lock close to our heart.

We were in Paris as the second stop on our honeymoon and took a walk to this bridge. The scenery was very beautiful and the atmosphere was also beautiful. We joined the tradition and joined all the others who had placed their padlocks on the bridge.

It was a nice experience to see this huge variety of locks. Interesting part for us was to observe some unique kind of locks. Amazing what probably was started by few people has grown to this level.

One of many bridges across the Seine. They all have different architectural features. This one used to be where the locks were attached before being moved. But if it's the locks you want they can still be seen in nearby locations.

We recently traversed the lovely Pont des Arts that connects the banks of the Seine River - Left Bank to the Right or vice versa. We came from the Musée d’Orsay (Left Bank), crossed the Bridge to get to the Tuileries Gardens (Right Bank). As usual, we paused for a while to admire the beautiful views of the Louvre, the... More

The pont des arts bridge was the love bridge where couples put a lock on the bridge and threw the key to the river. Due to overload all the locks have been taken down. Nothing special anymore, just as nice as all bridges on the river.
