Bridge of Lies, Sibiu

4.0
Bridge of Lies represents the oldest forged-iron bridge in Romania, decorated with rosettes plus floral and geometric motifs. It bears the city's coat of arms on its southern side. Friedrich-Hütte built the bridge in 1859, probably for the circulation of carts. The peculiar name of the bridge--which is the result of the mispronunciation of a German word "Liegenbrücke," meaning "the bridge down"--has inspired several local legends. One story goes that the bridge repeats all the lies uttered by the people crossing it, thus bringing the liars down to earth.

  • A must see if you are in Sibiu. Its close by within walking distance. Close by all the restaurant and all shops. Nice to see such an old bridge still stands strong after all these years and in great shape.
  • Nice touristic point in The middle of old town Sibiu. The bridge is close to the main square and all the cafes and shops around. It is a good point for going on tours around the town. You shouldn't miss it if your in Sibiu!
