Bridge of Lies, Sibiu

(440+ reviews on the web)
Bridge
Bridge of Lies represents the oldest forged-iron bridge in Romania, decorated with rosettes plus floral and geometric motifs. It bears the city's coat of arms on its southern side. Friedrich-Hütte built the bridge in 1859, probably for the circulation of carts. The peculiar name of the bridge--which is the result of the mispronunciation of a German word "Liegenbrücke," meaning "the bridge down"--has inspired several local legends. One story goes that the bridge repeats all the lies uttered by the people crossing it, thus bringing the liars down to earth. Put Bridge of Lies at the forefront of your travel plans using our Sibiu vacation route planner.

  • Next to the small square and the Church this bridge seems to be a must-see for tourists, in fact does nothing except a large traffic of cars below

  • The bridge of lies is part of a visit of the old town of Sibiu be sure to do so. On the bridge, you have wonderful views of the "upper town" and the "lower town" and the various walls.
