About Iron Footbridge

Located in Frankfurt, Germany, Iron Footbridge is a steel-framed footbridge that crosses the River Main and connects Frankfurt's south and north shores. This neo-Gothic-style iron bridge was built in 1869 and has been rebuilt many times until 1993. The guardrail on the bridge is covered with iron locks, and visitors come and hang their wishes here.

    This Gothic iron bridge on the Mein River in Frankfurt, once an important bridge connecting the south bank and the North bank, is now only one of many bridges, but it has become a symbol of people's love because of its concentric locks. It is also the best place to see the new and old cities on both sides of the Mein River. Because it was early in the morning, and saw the beautiful sunset

    Frankfurt is bound to be one of the attractions. The ancient and beautiful iron bridge on the Mein River has many locks left by tourists, expressing deep love. Under the bridge, you can take a cruise boat to visit the Mein River. One side of the bridge is the Roman Square, the other side is not there. It seems that there is a museum.

    A beautiful railway bridge can only be passed on foot. In the past, an old German woman was helped to move a wheelchair onto the bridge. I remember that there were at least twenty steps. Some iron locks were hung on the railings on both sides. It must be because the iron bridge in Cologne was full. So I moved to Frankfurt.

    This is one of the countless famous scenic spots in Frankfurt. It crosses the Maine River. The bridge deck is almost completely locked. Lovers hang the lock on the bridge together and throw the key into the Mein River below. The symbolic love binds them together like a lock.

    Tieqiao has many couples and pigeons. The bridge is very long. But it's really beautiful to take pictures of churches in the distance. It's cloudy today. I suggest you take pictures in sunny evening. It must be beautiful. Don't forget to take a lock and engrave a romantic moment forever. It's very cold in June. Everyone should take more clothes.

    The Frankfurt Rail Bridge is the first suspension bridge in Europe and a pedestrian bridge. There are many lover locks on the bridge. Newlyweds who get their marriage certificates from the City Hall like to take pictures on the bridge as a souvenir. Standing on the bridge, you can see the European Central Bank, which costs more than one billion euros. On the other side of the bridge is the old financial center issuing the first edition of the euro. The Mein River eventually flows into the Rhine River. There is an iron bridge on the river, which is covered with concentric locks symbolizing love pledges. Like many romantic rivers, the Mein River quietly speaks about the depth of history and the long-standing culture. Accumulation. Traveling through the streets and lanes of Frankfurt, looking at concentric locks on iron bridges and looking at fashionable Germans on the streets, you will find that Germans, known for their "stereotypes", are actually romantic.

    Locks engraved with lover's name are hung on the Mein River Bridge in Frankfurt. Is it useful for us to look at each other and laugh? I wonder if anyone has done a follow-up survey? But then I think that the two people who are padlocked are absolutely sincere. Since love is so unpredictable, it is also lucky to have absolute truth in a certain moment. Do we need it?

    With group tours, the first stop in Europe is Frankfurt, Germany, and the first tourist attraction in Frankfurt comes to this railway bridge. The tour guide recommends that this railway bridge is said to be the first suspension bridge in Europe and also a pedestrian bridge connecting the city centre with Saxony Hawson District. There is no sense of vicissitudes of life. Street artists shoot a stall and sing there. The bridge is locked with all kinds of prayers and concentric locks, which place the passionate love hopes of lovers. The scenery on both sides of the Mein River is very good. The photographs are taken at one side of the historical museum with a long history, and on the other side of the tall and modern buildings. Europe is rich in culture, which makes people feel that life has a strong sense of quality.
