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. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Paris holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Passerelle Leopold-Sedar-Senghor and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Paris on foot, is an experience that no one should miss, from my point of view, it is obligatory to do so to love the city and the Leopold Sedar Senghor bridge, which connects the museum d'Orsay to the Louvre, allows an unforgettable view to add to the must-see images of Paris.

  • If you visit the Orsay Museum and you need to go to the other side of the Seine, the footbridge will be them. Léopold Sédar Sangora (right). In addition to the complex is notable for its wooden bridge titles covering made of special wood. And here's Léopold Sédar Sangor turned out to be the President of Senegal, after whom the bridge was named deserved something, however.

  • The place to be pour le street workout!!!!
  • got to see the padlocks meant to symbolize eternal love..
  • Very nice walk and view
  • A pedestrian bridge with spectacular views. The Council has to go continually tearing locks people and paste, because the bridge would bear no weight.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
