“You have to do it if you are there”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

OK, the bottom line is it's a footbridge and they are not famous for their fun. However it is famous and has great views of the city. Built in the early 20th century and then again in 1946 (do the arithmetic) it has become a tourist attraction mainly for falling prey to the ridiculous padlocks romantic couples use to show their undying love uncertain as to whether the local authority will remove the padlocks before their love dies. The padlocks do make a good photo.

If you're nearby, make sure it's on your list

“Historic”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Great skyline, worth it for those who enjoy walking. It is a pedestrian bridge in a city crowded with cars, very good.

This is the place to have the best look at the skyline. Nice old pedestrian bridge that is also used by couples from all around the world to fix a lock to seal their friendship 'forever'.

“Scenic, romantic and beautiful !”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

This bridge is one of the oldest pedestrian bridge across the Main River. The first thing that you would notice as soon as entering the bridge is the numerous padded locks tied to the railings and literally on any space available on the both sides of the bridge structure by couples as a sign of their unending love. The Bridge also provides you with a good scenic view of the skyline and some of the oldest buildings in Frankfurt which would be a must watch for people with architectural interest. This bridge is a must visit for couples and a nice place to pass your time.
