Nice place to visit. With so many lovers etched their name in locks around you it will make you feel that you are indeed in the most romantic city. Not worth if you are not going with your loved ones.

Beautiful expansive bridge filled with "locks of love". Not to worry if you don't bring one from home because vendors sell them on the bridge and even the small convenience stores do, too. Our daughter decorated a lovely lock for us and we were able to out in on the Ponts des Arts bridge the day of our 25th anniversary!... More

We were walking from Notre Dame over to the Louvre, enjoying seeing more of the sights in Paris we could take in. We looked as bridges expanded across the Seine and one in particular looked beautiful from afar. As we got closer, with the streets lined by trees, we decided to stop and realized it was the Pont des Arts.... More

The bridge itself has become a bit boarded up and griffiti-riden, but the parts of it without boards still retain their romantic authenticity. Good for a photo to say you've been there, and to not go back. I enjoyed it though. Paris needs to put some effort into its attractions - they may lose a lot of visitors if they... More

I so couldn't wait to come here. And then we arrived... The sentiment is beautiful, but the bridge isn't what it used to be. Like other reviews have mentioned, the bridge is falling apart and a lot of sections have been boarded up and now it's just a graffitied mess! I think this would have made for a beautiful visit...

We went here to do an art class, but they moved it as workman were doing the cover up work. The bridge itself now has most of the panels covered up by plywood boards (which are covered in graffiti), as the fencing wire is falling apart from the weight of the locks leaving holes big enough for children to fall...

Every big city has a place like this but this one is different because you can see thousands of locks everywhere on this Pont! It is really amazing and you will be tempted to lock your love and through the key into the river!!

We all dream of putting a lock here, and I know it's falling apart but can we just make it support the locks? It looks so cute :( I have to be honest, its vandalising I know...but it looks so nice. And I think the locks are its attraction, I don't know, mixed feelings I guess!
