Tips from the community

In 2009, lovers began placing colorful padlocks on this Paris pedestrian bridge and throwing away the keys in the Seine, but this gesture of love led to a collapse of a section of the bridge’s metal grill in 2014 (and copycat padlock professions of love across Europe). The locks have been removed and authorities have encouraged lovers to take selfies on Pont des Arts instead.
