A rather "recent" bridge when compared to other Parisian bridges like "Pont Neuf", Pont des Arts is a pedestrian only bridge that offers a splendid walk from Louis XIV's Louvre's Cour Carée up to Institut de France, a unique Parisian baroque palace built by Louis...More

We didn't add any locks as I read the weight was hurting the bridge. It was nice to see there were some locks and it was fun to take pictures of.

This beautiful bridge, pedestrian so it's calm and peaceful, links up two of Paris' iconic landmarks, the Louvre and the Acadamie Francaise. Great place for a romantic stroll and picture-taking. I love to linger here. But don't add your pad lock to the bridge as...More

While going to key places of Paris, you can spend half an hour to this place. There are thousands of love locks in this bridge. :) You can also put a lock if you want and believe in this myth!

Fun & romantic. Something worth for a couple to see. If you didn't remember to bring a lock, it's easy to buy one close by, or at the place, for a small price.

Yes, the locks are gone, (although some are sneaking them on again) but it's a bridge! In Paris! That musicians play their cellos on! You simply must walk across. Mais oui.

I just love this bridge It feels so different than the others and has a quaint people feel about it. And the views of the Seine are always wonderful and ever-changing. Love to walk along the river and criss cross the bridges!

the authorities have removed the side grill along with all the locks and replaced with glass sheets... so nothing special about this bridge anymore !!
