  • This bridge is not only a pedestrian path between the new and the old town, but also a place of lovers. In the world it is considered that one of the pledges of love and devotion is a padlock, which symbolically embodies the feelings of the lovers and newlyweds together and supports the pledge their allegiance. Locks of love hang out on bridges, lamps, etc. They come in small and large, with or without names, names of different shapes and designs. It is widely accepted that tradition came from Florence or Rome and did not pass the glorious city of Salzburg. For the first time at this place, at the beginning of the last century, the bridge was built in Art Nouveau style, it was demolished in 1967 year and built the current, named in honor of the 19 century Austrian artist Hans Makart, who was born and grew up in Salzburg. Now this place is very busy, not only because of the romanticism and inspiration, but also attracts all those who wish to explore the surrounding countryside and local attractions.
