If one disregards how overcrowded it could be as well as the sellers of locks everywhere, it could be very romantic when you're there with your other half.

Pont des Arts was famous for the "love locks", but the local government has decided to remove the locks as it is a hazard to the bridge. The bridge is being covered with some modern art paintings, which looks like more like graffiti. On the bridge, you still get a great view of the Seine river.

I just love this bridge, I always came here whenever in Paris... I would wait for sunsets here - and last month this was exactly what I did with my husband... for all couples or even individuals, don't miss this walk when in paris!

So the removed most of the locks off because it was weighing down the bridge and additional 4 tons. There are still locks on the sides but no longer on the main bridge. They now have some modern art that covers the bridge and it looks horrible, like graffiti. the bridge itself is in a very poor condition. the wooden... More

This used to be the bridge that romantics flocked to with their padlocks. Sadly too many did and as a result one of the railings became too heavy and fell off. As a result the bridge was closed and 45 tons of padlocks were cut off. The horrible boarding that was put up to prevent their return has resulted in... More

I bet this would have been a sight to see when the entire fencing was covered by locks. Now they just have short sections at the ends that are not actually on the bridge covered with locks. The fencing on the bridge is this awful green and grey stuff that does not allow for locks.

I understand that the locks were damagind the bridge's structure... but what can I do? It is just not the same without them! Honestly, the boarding they putted there is just making a beautiful bridge looks ugly and dirty! It's not helping. Maybe they should come with a better solution for that...

Went there at night. However, was disappointed that the side of the bridge was boarded up to prevent people from putting in lock on the bridge. In the end, we manged to put the lock at the side of the bridge, which was pretty disappointing in the end. The art on the bridge boards are distractions from the beautiful scenery.

I know the title sound silly but there is a spot on the bridge where I always stand, looking toward the island. It's toward the left bank end of the bridge and is a wonderful photo op. I just couldn't ever go to Paris without visiting this spot.

Since they took the locks away and boarded it up on one side it looks awful, not sure if this is a permanent thing or not. I also saw a group of con men and women pretending to play a game on the bridge take 50 euros off a girl. Long story short she actually got the money back in... More
