Pont Des Arts - Review
This walking bridge, even though a bit rundown is probably the most humbly romantic thing about Paris. Walking distance from Louvre, this bridge is known for its thousands of love locks that have been attached to the railings by amorous couples. These locks have the names of the lovers written on them and the keys are thrown into the river. A simple yet beautiful gesture of love makes this bridge one of the loveliest sites in Paris.

Pont Des Arts, Paris Reviews
Once upon the time many had love locks there. Romantic and unforgettable memory still very dear to my heart although all padlocks were removed due to the weight issue and unacceptable eye sore to Parisians. Wooden bridge a remarkable reminder of previous times. Strolling on the bridge feels like walking through history imagining how many people crossed it over hundreds of years enjoying beautiful scenery and endless views of river Seine. Still very romantic stroll for people who came from all over the world to enjoy breathtakingly beautiful city of L❤️VE.
One of the best places to just sit and enjoy the Seine at night. The Eiffel tower, clearly visible, is beautiful, sparkling the last five minutes of every hour. If you're lucky, you can see a band perform. Also, bring some snacks and wine to sit by the Riverside for a picnic. Beautiful!
Not worth it. Its just a simple bridge. I heard is used to be a famous one with an option to put locks but it's nothing like that. Don't waste your time by going here. It was donot a waste of time going there, there's nothing to watch our see except the rubber which you can see from each and every bridge in the area.
come for sunset & grab a seat toward west. I’d say it’s worth enjoying the breeze above the Seine. I personally don’t like locks on the bridge. so I am thankful for the design now. The bridge is not classic enough like the other ones, but it is one of the best bridge for sunset and chill without cars around.
It's such a shame that you can't hook your padlocks on the bridge anymore as they have glassed Infront of the rails. People do however climb the lamp posts to put them at the top or bike chains around the middle. And people put padlocks pretty much all over Paris. It just doesn't feel as romantic as I think it probably used to.
