It's just a bridge, except that to connects the Île de la Cité and the Île Saint-Louis.
If you're on the Île de la Cité, the original site of Paris, and you want to walk to the Île Saint-Louis for ice cream at Bertillon.
This is the little pedestrian bridge between the 2 islands. Lots of people cross it. Some great views of the river and its banks, good for photos. Often there are musicians and performers here, some quite good. Entertaining.

Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
