Formerly known as passerelle Solférino, Passerelle Leopold-Sedar-Senghor is a footbridge over the River Seine and is considered one of the most scenic spots in Paris. You can stop by for a relaxing stroll while enjoying the sights and sounds of the city.

Crossing the Seine with a single span and no piers, this metallic bridge is architecturally unique and covered in exotic woods, which gives it a light and warm appearance. Its solidity is, however, never in doubt--at either end, its foundations are in the form of concrete pillars, and the structure itself is made up of six 150 ton components built by the Eiffel engineering company, Eiffel Constructions métalliques. Its innovative architecture brought Marc Mimram the Prix de l'Équerre d'Argent award in 1999.

The bridge also has benches where you can rest your feet as well as lampposts to light your way. To visit Passerelle Leopold-Sedar-Senghor on your holiday in Paris, and find out what else Paris has to offer, use our Paris family vacation planner.

  • There are many bridges over the Seine. Some are more beautiful than others, in my humble opinion. I especially liked this one - near the Promenade des Berges de la Seine.
  • This pedestrian bridge connects my two favourite pedestrian (and cycling) places in Paris - Jardin des Tuileries (no bikes) and Les Berges (bikes allowed). Let it be known that this is NOT the love locks bridge, nor is it a place to leave a lock because they get cut off frequently.
  • It's a must-see bridge in Paris if you're in to walking the city. Also called the Love Lock bridge, people write their initials on padlocks and lock them to the bridge. It's just cool to see.
  • The locks are gone. But artwork outdoor display is great
  • Nice view for whole paris
