Passerelle Leopold-Sedar-Senghor, Paris

(60+ reviews on the web)
Bridge
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.

  • In the Musee d'Orsay, on the left bank across the Leopold SEDAR Senghor for bridge. Received the Legion of honor (Takeshi Kitano also taken it), Marc, MIME RAM design. Becoming a double structure that goes out on the bridge opened up and climb into the sky from the Seine in structures built using current technology. For citizens was the only car that was refurbished. Bridge landscape is ruined so often covered by many padlocks in the worst fashion of Paris, is a shame. Soon all removed I want. Film "the strongest two ' in there as a filming location.
