The thing about Copenhagen is it surprises me almost every day. I found this surprise on a beautiful night after walking home from the Fisketorvet -cinema. This skinny,gray and simple biking/pedestrian bridge happens to be an exquisite “work of art” telling the Copenhageners and its visitors’ love stories.
On this bridge combining areas Islands Brygge and Kalvebod Brygge you will find hundreds of padlocks. The phenomenom behind is Love locks, also seen in other big cities of the world. The couples come and lock their padlocks (decorated with their names) to the wires of the bridge, then throw the keys to the water below as a sign of unbreakable love.
Absolutely cute idea, and without a big effort, creates a beautiful story of romance and love in Copenhagen. Go see in the evening when its dark, the view from the bridge offers a lot to watch in the surroundings, too, with all the modern buildings being lit with pretty lights. An every romantic’s must-see -spot.
p.s. On the Kalvebod Brygge’s side, there is a very nice spot looking over the water to sit and talk sweet with your “kæreste” f.ex. before going to see a film in Fisketorvet’s Cinemaxx
