Pont des Arts, Paris

4.0
#87 of 1,994 in Things to do in Paris
A pedestrian bridge, Pont des Arts crosses the Seine River, linking the Institut de France and the central square of the Palais du Louvre. Many lovebirds come here to lock padlocks to the railing or grating on the side of the bridge. They then throw the key into the Seine as a romantic gesture, representing the couple's commitment. Note that the French police patrol the bridge to stop people from throwing keys into the river. Use our Paris trip maker tool to arrange your visit to Pont des Arts and other attractions in Paris.

  • I found the bridge of luck when he was walking through the area. Majestic recommended is the view on both sides.

  • The bridge received the romantics, but nothing sustainable "locks of love", and had, in this ritual, your biggest attraction. The locks weighed and threatened the structure of the bridge, in addition to pollute the Seine River with the keys that were thrown into the water by tourists, as a guarantee of "love sealed". Now the guard rails were replaced with tempered glass, returning to your original lightness, but losing part of the charm and romanticism. The bridge is across from the Louvre, and is one of many to admire in Paris ...

  • Beautiful wide bridge that connects to the Love ones.when I visited this place back in 2014 this bridge was full of locks ,it was fun to look at all locks and read some of the notes written with them.While most of the locks have been removed from bridges, I guess there are still many left .it is also a very Nice spot to watch the Eiffel Tower light up at night.
  • Beautiful spot, but the city took down the fence with the locks. Now they are just on the lamp posts. Beautiful views up and down the Seine.

  • Scenic wide bridge that spans the Seine and connects to the Louvre. While most of the locks have been removed from bridges, there are still sections full of them. Beautiful view in both directions. Nice spot to watch the Eiffel Tower lit up at night in the distance.
  • It's a bridge. I crossed it. I got to the other side. Luckily it didn't fall down. Like other bridges crossing the Seine, you get a nice view of the river.
