From the bridge you will get a gorgeous view of Notre Dame. It’s stunning at sunset.
The locks are gone except at certain places but there are still signs of people leaving their love marks along the bridge.
The oldest bridge in Paris.. So impressive. I'm in love with it.
One of my favorite bridges in Paris. Must walk beside Seine and back and forth over bridges of this area.
The white stone spans of Paris' oldest bridge, ironically called 'New Bridge', have linked the Île de la Cité with both banks of the Seine since 1607. That's when Henri IV inaugurated the bridge by riding across on a white stallion. The Pont Neuf and the nearby place Dauphine were used for public exhibitions in the 18th century. In the last century the bridge itself became an objet d'art on at least three occasions: in 1963, when School of Paris artist Nonda built, exhibited and lived in a huge Trojan horse of steel and wood on the bridge; in 1984 when the Japanese designer Kenzo covered it in flowers; and in 1985 when the Bulgarian-born 'environmental sculptor' Christo famously wrapped it in beige fabric.
The New Bridge: the oldest bridge in Paris
Great sight to see, lot's of people to watch and shopping all in one day. Stop and have a baguette.
Paris's oldest standing bridge. If you are walking along the Seine you really can't miss it.
