THE BEST PLACES TO HANG YOUR LOVE LOCK

Some great places where you can make this heartfelt gesture

Placing your padlock on a bridge

Love locks have become a 21st century symbol of romance.

Famously suggested in Federico Moccia’s novels Tre Metri sopra il Cielo (Three Meters above the Sky) and Ho Voglia di Te (I Desire You), placing your padlock on a bridge has become a worldwide tradition – although it is widely believed that the origins are in China a long time before the Moccia novels.

Sadly, some bridges become overburdened and the locks are removed but there are still some great places where you can make this heartfelt gesture.

And new places are beginning to become popular.

1. PONT DE L’ARCHEVÊCHÉ, PARIS, FRANCE

A stunning setting over the River Seine and overlooked by Notre Dame cathedral.

2. LUZHKOV BRIDGE, MOSCOW RUSSIA

It’s traditional for newlywed Russians to share a kiss on a bridge. It’s said to bring good luck to the happy couple. The pedestrian Luzhkov Bridge over the Moskva River features trees, “planted” so that lovers can attach their love locks.

3. NORTH SEOUL TOWER, SOUTH KOREA

What a way to crown the top of Nam Mountain.

4. HOHENZOLLERN BRIDGE, COLOGNE, GERMANY

The liebesschloesser make a nice sight for the passing train passengers!

5. ENOSHIMA, JAPAN

So romantic! On the cliffside of Enoshima Island is a pavilion with a bell that is dedicated to the myth of a five-headed dragon who loved a heavenly maiden until he died. Couples ring the bell together to vow their eternal love and place a lock on the fence around the pavilion to commemorate this act.

6. BROOKLYN BRIDGE, NEW YORK, USA

Locks are accompanied by messages written on the girders.

Naturally, love locks have found their way to one of the world’s most romantic cities.

Metro Vancouver’s amorous couples have a public location to literally seal their passion with padlocks

Pecs claims to have started the trend back in the 1980s, before Moccia’s book brought the idea to Rome’s Milvian Bridge.

Korakuen is one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan

No bridges in Naples but the lampposts around the bayfront are a good substitute.

14. TUMSKI BRIDGE, WROCLAW, POLAND

After attaching the padlock, lovers throw the keys into the Odra River.

Attached to the fountain is a plaque which reads, “The legend of this young fountain tells us that if a lock with the initials of two people in love is placed in it, they will return together to the fountain and their love will be forever locked.”

16. TWO LOVER’S POINT, GUAM, USA

Puntan dos Amantes is a picturesque and incredibly romantic spot that overlooks the ocean.

24. JULIET’S HOUSE, VERONA, ITALY

Could there be anywhere more perfect to seal your relationship than the location of the world’s greatest love story.

25. MILVIAN BRIDGE, ROME, ITALY
