Pont des Arts is a lovely pedestrian bridge over the Seine River. At one entry side of the bridge is the Institut de France, and at the other side is the Palais du Louvre. The bridge is famous for all the love locks placed on it by thousands of visitors over time. As the weight of the locks took its toll and became unbearable for the bridge and dangerous to pedestrians, all the locks were removed. The views from the bridge are quite lovely and it is worth a visit.

Incredible views of the Seine and the back side of the Palais du Louvre. I was expecting to see the bridge full of padlocks which is a symbol of love however at some time they removed all the panels and replaced them with lucite. I guess to keep from weighing it down and falling in the Seine. I bought a padlock but left it home in the states and didn't want to buy another. I was happy to share it with my true love, my son Xavier!!

the Pont des Arts was the love locks bridge until the weight of the padlocks caused one of the railings to give way. so now the authorities are discouraging the locks being attached again but that is likely why you will find the street vendors selling locks and you seeing the locks back on othe Pont des Arts and on several other bridges too. even if you aren't placing a lock, it's a wonderful bridge - quiet and you can look up and down the Seine and check out both sides of the river without any rush.

Well sort of, on previous visits, the railings would be covered in locks as couples would declare there love, however, now a days it is frowned upon, (it doesnt stop the touts though). Our favourite thing about this bridge is that it is pedestrianised, (no scooters, bikes etc), just feet, how cool. It is in a lovely part of the Seine with the Louvre on one side and the Institut de France on the other, we found our selves crossing this wonderful bridge many times.
