Very nice pedestrian bridge over the Seine in the center of town. Very much worth a walk across to enjoy the splendid views.

This is a footbridge crossing the Seine near the Louvre. There is a nice view of the river and it is relaxing to be able to enjoy the scene without cars and exhaust. If you can route yourself across, it is a pleasant option.

This is quite a new bridge. It was constructed between 1997 and 1999. It was named after the first President of Senegal in 2006. It's beautiful double decker wooden bridge. Not so many tourists here. There is enough benches on the bridge.

Pedestrian bridge near the Louvre. The bridge is attractive with multiple materials. On one side is a great statue of Thomas Jefferson who had a close connection to France

This is not the original “Bridge of Locks” but is a relatively new substitute bridge located very close to the Musee d’Orsay. The original “Bridge of Locks” has had all the locks removed because of the accumulated weight. Since the Passerelle Leopold-Sedar-Senghor is a pedestrian...More

Being solely a pedestrian bridge. It is handy to cross from the Louvre over to the Musee D'Orsay, Quite a wide bridge with plenty of room. Trivia - The bridge is covered in exotic wood from Brazil.

I visited this bridge after visiting Musee d'Orsay to enjoy the view of River Seine and to relax. There are love locks decorating the bridge and you can see many people exercising down near the river, people walking on the street, and many other activities....More

Stroll across the Seine River from the Tuileries Garden to the Musée d'Orsay and enjoy beautiful views of Paris. Lively bridge with a mix of international travelers. Benches for resting or people watching. Bridge can be accessed from the street or river.

No... not at all, you can walk free as long as you want. It is a public bridge. I don't like the padlocks. The bridge was more beautiful without all the padlocks (in 2011 when I was there)
