Bridge of Lies, Sibiu

(3.5/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Characteristic footbridge constructed with metal structure. Combines two squares of the city. Nice to see both from below than from above.

  • The special thing about this bridge is that it is the only one in Romania that its made from cast iron. Other than that it's a pretty average small birdge.  more »
  • Why is a small iron bridge so important? We were three there and everyone has remembers when entering past, future, necessary and unnecessary lies. Entail nice conversations and funny confession!
