Pont des Invalides, Paris

#282 of 1,994 in Things to do in Paris
Although Pont des Invalides is most commonly known as the lowest bridge traversing the Seine, it holds historical significance as well. When you visit this site, be sure to learn its story, which starts in 1821 with Claude Navier. Navier once imagined a revolutionary bridge that crossed the Seine in one single reach, without any point of support in between. Due to cracks in some parts of the bridge and gradual settling, the project was abandoned before the bridge even made it into service.

  • The most beautiful part of the bridge are the sides facing the river Seine, with his sculptures. It is very beautiful as construction, and even prettier as a work of art to be admired from the edge.

  • The Pont des Invalides is a nice bridge linking the Rive Droite and the Rive Gauche of Paris. It is named after the nearby Invalides!  more »
  • The open public place and large green area adds to the grandeur of the Muses De L'Armee and opens up the central location of Paris filled with historic buildings and grand boulevards to the south bank of the river Seine
  • Nice area but polluted: when paris maior will impose electric cars?
  • Just one more of the many historic bridges crossing the Seinne in the city of lovers.
  • Pont des Invalides sited in between the Pont de l’Alma and the Pont Alexandre III. From this lovely bridge, you will able to view the river and Eiffel Tower. Several tourist attractions like the Grand Palais, the Palais de la Decouverte science museum, Les Invalides and many more are in walking distances from this lowest bridge over Seine.
  • A nice walk to or from the Eiffel Tower, This will give you an interesting taste of French military history. We were surprised how many times we had seen this bridge in old pictures and films without knowing where it was. The Pont des Invalides is a great place to enjoy the fabulous panoramic view of the Eiffel Tower and the perspective view of the Seine is quite stunning.
