Passerelle Leopold-Sedar-Senghor, Paris
(3.7/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Perfect way to access the Tuileries for a leisurely stroll after a morning and lunch at Musee d'Orsay! 
  • A pedestrian bridge connecting the Orsay Museum Tuileries garden. various banks to sit on There butts and watch the river. Unfortunately now turned point for the locks.

  • Many don't like it, but the locks of love left the Pont of Arts and migrated to the Leopold-Sedar Senghor-catwalk. There's no way to resist a romantic trip to Paris and not let her lock there. Just don't forget to put the key into the river Seine.

  • I love this bridge for its aesthetic design, but it's being ruined by locks. It is not the love locks bridge! The City of Paris has posted signs asking people to put locks on the bridge because they destroying it. Besides, the city cuts off the locks every few months so it is best to declare your love to each other and cherish the memory than to entrust it to a physical object that will be discarded.
  • 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.
  • One of the many bridges crossing the Seine in downtown Paris. Not a historical bridge however it has a nice design
  • Pedestrian Bridge between le Jardin de Tuileries and the Musée D'Orsay. lovers use it to promise eternal love with lower. Full 360 degree view on the main landscape of Paris
  • 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.
