Eiserner Steg, Frankfurt

4.3
Built in 1867 to support horse and carriage traffic over the River Main to the train station, Eiserner Steg offers stunning views of Frankfurt's skyline and most historic buildings. Cars are not allowed on the bridge, making it an ideal place for a romantic walk or a pensive stroll. Along the railings and bridge structure, you'll find hundreds of padlocks placed here by couples as a symbol of their unending love. The bridge connects the city's historic quarter with the Sachsenhausen district, where plentiful museums and pubs serve typical German cider.

  • The Eiserner Steg bridge or Iron Bridge, as much of the city, was destroyed during the World War 2, but was rebuilt shortly thereafter. It is the bridge that connects the city centre to the Sachsenhausen district. Is exclusively for pedestrians and allows amazing vision of the city! The Germans chose this bridge to record the star-crossed lovers! Those who wish to take note of it, put padlocks hung from the railing of the structures of iron and play the key into the river so there's no separation. And you could epitomize your love?
