Built in 1867 to support horse and carriage traffic over the River Main to the train station, Iron Bridge 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.

A walking brigade across the mainz river and on top of this you get to see the thousand of locks people have put on the bridge to mark their love! Great views into the city and a really neat way if... more »
So I've wanted to be at a lovelock bridge and put up a lock just because I wanted to. I know it's supposed to have a couple name but I didn't want to miss out on the opportunity of having my name on..... more »
Such an awesome place to visit. Plenty of love locks. And the surroundings are too good to roam around. You have an excellent view from the bridge while the boats, ships pass underneath. You'll find plenty of shopping near by and Sunday's there is an open market where you get clothes, chains, fancy necklace, etc. Good place to visit during weekends. Enjoy
Very interesting bridge. It kind of reminds me of the one in Budapest, same colour but bigger. It has a lot of locks, all shapes and colours. I saw somewhere that this bridge is also known as Love Bridge. 🤩. It is pedestrian only and at the middle you can feel the movement of the bridge in windy days.
