Bridge
Formerly the pont de Passy, Le Pont de Bir-Hakeim is a steel bridge that crosses the Seine River in Paris and is the second bridge to have stood at this site. You can enjoy this site using two levels--one for motor vehicles and one for pedestrians.

If you’re looking for some history, look for the central arch of the viaduct. The arch is decorated with four monumental stone statues, including figures of Science and Labor by Jules-Felix Coutan, and Electricity and Commerce by Jean Antoine Injalbert. Attend at night to enjoy the line of glowing street lights on Le Pont de Bir-Hakeim. Also keep in mind that many movies have featured this bridge, such as Last Tango in Paris and Inception. By using our Paris holiday planner, you can arrange your visit to Le Pont de Bir-Hakeim and other attractions in Paris.

  • It is very nice bridge, though the reason why I went was due more than anything to the film, when DiCaprio told Page not to use landmarks in dreams not to confound the reality. That doesn't mean by anything that is a good point to visit or pass through it.

  • This bridge over the Seine is unusual. Around here you see good views of the 16th Arrondisement and the Front de Seine. Nearby is an important memorial to those deported through the Velodrome d'hiver ...  more »
  • Built from 1903 to 1905, he was ranked in Historical Monuments in 1986. The Paris metro passes on the floor of this bridge. It presents beautiful sculptures. In the middle lies the Passy viaduct with its reliefs and crests, and the statue of the Renaissante France. Side dock Branly, to the right of this bridge you can also admire the statues of General Diego Brosset and Jean François de Galaup La Pérouse County. Come to metro station "Bir Hakeim" or RER "Champs de Mars - Tour Eiffel".

  • Nice bridge to walk along side. View to eiffel tower is great. The statue of lady on horse is so funny, I don't understand the message....
  • One of the best views of the Seine and the Eiffel Tower. Popular place for proposals and wedding shoots (I've lost count how many I've seen by now).
  • Excellent vantage point to experience the Eiffel Tower, good time to go is right before sunset.
  • Speedy photo of the Eiffel tower from the metro. Always welcome and as a living room. Welcome to Paris :))
  • Cool view of Seina and ET! We crossed the bridge on our way to Bois de Boulogne and were quite surprised with the view!
