Pont Nuef means new bridge, but it is the oldest standing bridge in Paris! Lovers have begun placing love locks on the bridge corner, it is interesting to see them, I did notice that most of the ones I could see where about 6 months old as the oldest, so they must cut these away. There are some beautiful views... More

Connecting Cite with both sides of Paris, this bridge is one of many around Paris. What is interesting is the view from it on a river and a city, quite nice place for decent photos.

The bridge itself is beautiful, and the views of the river are equally nice. The padlock corner is really beautiful. Go there!

If you visit any of the attractions on ile de la cite, you would most probably get to see and cross this bridge. Paris has lots of beautiful bridges and this is just one of them but not the most remarkable one. I guess the main appeal is that it is the oldest bridge among others.

This is a fun place to go - one of the famous bridges over the Seine. The views are great and the thousands of padlocks are fun to look at.

There are alot of bridges in Paris and some are elaborate and some are more plain. This one is not the most impressive bridge, but it is a popular spot for love locks so it is an interesting sight to see. Great place for photos.

Because of its romantic atmosphere, but not only. Also great if you wanna just have a walk and enjoy the view of the Seine River.

My most favorite point in Paris. It reminds me of Les miserables (the book & the Liam Neeson/Geoffrey Rush movie). Serene & Captivating. If you keep your vision level just above the car-inhabited roads so you can see only the trees, the bridge & the old buildings, you can travel back in time to the 19th century. P.S.: if you... More
