This bridge is also known as ‘the bridge of the Invalides’. Its first construction took place in 1821 and it was designed by engineer, Claude Navier. He wanted to construct a suspension bridge across river Siena without any point of support. However, with time, cracks started appearing. This ultimately led to its reconstruction in the year 1855 on the occasion of World Fair. The median stack on both sides of the bridge represents Victorian figures. The one on the upstream side represents the Earth Victory and the one on the downstream side represents Maritime Victory. These stacks were installed to represent the military success of Napoleon II in the Crimea.

However, when you see the bridge today you might find many changes in its construction because of the repeated renovation works done on it.

  • Pont des Invalides sited in between the Pont de l’Alma and the Pont Alexandre III. From this lovely bridge, you will able to view the river and Eiffel Tower. Several tourist attractions like the Grand Palais, the Palais de la Decouverte science museum, Les Invalides and many more are in walking distances from this lowest bridge over Seine.

  • Good for picnicking with some friends!

  • Beautiful bridge, calm and serene.

  • A nice walk to or from the Eiffel Tower, This will give you an interesting taste of French military history. We were surprised how many times we had seen this bridge in old pictures and films without knowing where it was. The Pont des Invalides is a great place to enjoy the fabulous panoramic view of the Eiffel Tower and the perspective view of the Seine is quite stunning.

  • Some of best views in the city.
