Paris love lock Bridge is something very well known in France and Europe. More then 15 thousand people walk on it everyday and thousand of Parisienne come to make picnic on it. 

 Many  couples have been coming here from all over the world to show their undying love.

They do it by placing a lock with their names written on it on one of the fences and then throw the key into the river. I liked the whole concept except the fact that you have to throw your key into the river. Mainly, because I didn’t want to pollute the river and secondly, I didn’t want to get arrested for what is essentially littering.

I’m not sure if the Parisian police plan on continuing to cut down the locks – they’ve done it in the past but they don’t seem to be cracking down on it. There are multiple street vendors selling locks on and around the bridge. And now there are two bridges in Paris covered with these locks. But be careful which bridge you choose: one is for your committed love and the other, Pont de l’ArchevĂȘchĂ©, is for your lover.
