Eiserner Steg, Frankfurt
(4.4/5 based on 850+ 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 beautiful bridge. Night is generally excellent. Connects two parts of Frankfurt. Beautiful, glows, you can walk on it:) A number of skyscrapers and old town, interesting combination of two different city stilistik altogether.

  • I wonder why there are locks tied to both sides of the iron walls of the bridge.. the view was amazing...while trying to take a selfie my phone slipped and drowned in the river....came back with a heavy heart.
  • Locks of Love! Often, musicians will be playing on the Bridge... notable meeting place & just a great, convenient way to get across the RheinMain River
  • I feel it is general european style house. If you want to photo here. I suggest go to there in morning is better.
  • Schöne Fußgänger Brücke mit super Blick auf sie Frankfurter skyline. Wackelt aber irgendwie recht stark. 😨
  • Good view in Frank furt. You can see both old town and new town in this bridge. You can feel the piece seeing the river and yiu can see the people jogging and walking around.
