Bridge of Lies, Sibiu
(3.5/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • Great to visit in winter time, when christmas decorations are on! Great photo spot. Good restaurants nearby. 
  • A simple bridge along a couple of meters. If it weren't for the legends that revolve around, would pass entirely unnoticed

  • Visited last week with my family whilst visiting the nearby Christmas market . Great history although most of the sweetheart locks have been removed looks great light up . Very busy though
