Like Joshua crossing the River Jordan, you can walk dry shod across the Rhine on this wonderfully elaborate bridge...and if you wander down to the embanked, not only a splendid stroll, but lots of places to pay homage to beer in every iteration.

This bridge is a fairly unique and strong bridge boasting a modern design which stannds out across the city. I travelled over it several times and the cityscape view was pleasant. Worth visiting if you're in the area.

Nice scenic bridge to walk across. There are lots of couples looking to padlock their love and find a good spot. The bridge is also used by trains.

It is a wonderful walk. Nice view, see the love padlocks and when you reach the other side you have a selection of coffee shops.

This is a surprisingly long bridge, which is fun to walk over, looking at the padlocks, which are on every available piece of the fence panels. I hope the couples who put them there all managed to find everlasting love. We did wonder what all...More

I’m not sure what else to say. Admittedly I was slightly mesmerised by there sheer number of lovers padlocks (a few basic ones as well), but it is just a bridge. I did keep wondering how much extra weight these things have added and whether...More
