4.4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web
Built in 1867 to support horse and carriage traffic over the River Main to the train station, Eiserner Steg offers stunning views of Frankfurt's skyline and most historic buildings. Cars are not allowed on the bridge, making it an ideal place for a romantic walk or a pensive stroll. Along the railings and bridge structure, you'll find hundreds of padlocks placed here by couples as a symbol of their unending love. The bridge connects the city's historic quarter with the Sachsenhausen district, where plentiful museums and pubs serve typical German cider.

  • Very good view from the bridge. I love all the red locks on both sides of the bridge being put on by lovers and couples! Sweet!
  • Pretty, old bridge with a great view of the skyline. It's also a great location to place a love-lock if you are a couple.
  • When you're on the Northern banks, be sure to take a look at the markings in the plaque. It shows the heights of all the floods on river Main.
