As is the modern custom through out Europe and the world, people flock to bridges on their travels to put a lovers lock on the bridge.Personally I don't really get it , but the bridge does provide a great view of the city and fortress

As with many other cities Salzburg has a bridge which has attracted lovers , or individuals to leave their mark in the form of a locked padlock. Unlike Paris which disposed of the locks Salzburg as a city of romance has decided to embrace them....More

Its an interesting sociological point of interest. Much like carving one's initials to profess your love.... Guess this happens worldwide, sometime randomly, but it appears that this was part of the bridge's design inception.

Took this bridge to walk from the new town where our hotel was to the old town and its a nice bridge with infinite number of locks on either side.

The love lock bridge is one of many in Europe, but this one has the benefit of offering the best views of the entire Salzburg old town. Great photo opps all over :)

Took some amazing photos on this bridge, you could spend hours just reading all the locks! Tip: take your own personalized lock, local shops charging over 10 euros for one small one!

After visiting the Old Town my wife Jane and sister Elaine with her husband Roy all visited this lovely part of town by the riverside. We walked along the bridge as the rain had eased looking at all the love padlocks as you can see.
