We returned to Paris in June having previously visited 4 years ago. The bridge has changed as the padlocks have been removed now and replaced with some interesting art. It is a little sad the padlocks have gone as they made for some wonderful photos however we know the bridge was going to be damaged if they remained. Still worth... More

If your in Paris for a romantic getaway this is a MUST. It's a lovely little stop and barely takes anytime at all. We bought a large lock for 10€ from a man selling them on the bridge. A bit expensive but a huge time saver. He also had permanent markers for us to use. (Variety of colours too, we... More

Love this bridge. The only pedestrian only bridge in Paris. It used to be the love lock bridge but they have all been removed and now there is glass preventing any further locks. Great views of the water. Come here at night, gets lively with music and lots of people drinking .

We were in Paris in May and crossed the Pont des Arts many times. There were some locks back which is kinda cool, but just not good for the bridge. This is a lovely area with lots going on. Don't miss the people watching here.

It is a bridge full of sculptures, with artists, musicians and a bealtiful view. You can just croos the bridge, or you can seat and feel and enjoy the atmosphere

Bridge is nice, we crossed it when the locks were still present and added one ourselves, which was a nice romantic gesture. The only thing that spoiled our experience (not just on this bridge, but throughout Paris) was the amount of beggars, pick-pocketers and pushy merchants. Be wary of people (mainly women) around this area coming up to you and... More

We walked on the Pont des Arts on our way to the Notre Dame cathedral. So happy all the locks are gone never to return. In their place are several beautiful modern sculptures that will generate much conversation. The artist is Daniel Hourde.

The locks were a nice idea, but clearly went a bit too far with so much weight being loaded on to the bridge. The Paris authorities have obviously felt the need to compensate and have replaced the locks with sculptures by Daniel Hourdé. Not quite the same, but worth a look.

Nice pedestrian bridge with display of art. Though there is so much art all around this area, that you will hardly miss anything if you skip this bridge.

It was really cool seeing all the locks and stuff. And seeing all the cute relationships that I will never have. #notgoals
