The Passerelle Simone-de-Beauvoir (initially known by the provisional name of passerelle Bercy-Tolbiac) is a bridge solely for pedestrians and cyclists across the Seine River in Paris. It is the 37th bridge on the Seine to Paris. It is located between the bridges of Pont de Bercy and Pont de Tolbiac and links up the 12th and 13th arrondissements of Paris. Its nearest Paris Metro station is Quai de la Gare.HistoryThe central span of the bridge is made of steel, weighs, is long and wide. The span was constructed by the Eiffel company in the Alsace and was transported by canal, the North Sea, the English Channel and French rivers to its destination, crossing Paris on a barge on November 30, 2005. It was hoisted in place in two hours on January 29, 2006, around three o'clock in the morning.The passerelle is characteristic of its time and distinguishes itself from the three other footbridges that already cross the Seine in Paris . The geometry of its members reduces shearing. This is a lens-shaped structure. Its rotational anchorage on its supports brings its structural height back down to the different levels of the quais at either end. Its five crossings pass over the river without supports in water. It rejoins the streets on the high bank

  • Footbridge Simone de Beauvoir is nestled between the BNF and the gardens of Bercy offering a nice walk and a nice view on the Seine. You can stroll on the right bank that left and lunch at the lighthouse boat.

  • While crossing the bridge I was really interested and impressed by the architecture of the structure, some referring to such a design as “aerodynamic”. It was a very nice experience crossing the bridge since it is actually out of tourists crowds, so it’s not as popular and therefore not as cramped as the other bridges crossing the Seine. Its a great bridge to take a romantic stroll or a leisurely walk, and is also a very nice place for a picture. Given that the bridge connects the Parc de Bercy to the Bibliotèque Nationals de France, its proximity to many well-known attractions makes it a prime location for those wanting to explore the beautiful city of Paris. I also found the bridge’s history interesting, as it is the first bridge built in the 21st century and was actually erected in the honor of a woman, which I was pleased to hear.
  • Really nice bridge. Beautiful view
  • very interesting design and a good connection of public library and arena over the seine river.
  • Cool!! Not always very practical since it lacks a flat pathway, but cool! Between the arches are some benches to hang out or to act romantic.
  • Super for hanging around and have a drink by the seine at "la playe" et oui c est Paris !! 😊
