LOCK your LOVE

Spread the love

For those of you who aren’t familiar with this romantic bridge, it is famous for two things: its unmatched view of the slightly crooked Zuiderkerk; and the abundance of “love” padlocks that adorn its chains. The “love” bridges are famous all over the world, namely Paris’ Pont de Arts. Padlocks are typically locked to these bridges symbolizing a couple’s love and devotion to one another. Love locks are a custom by which padlocks are affixed to a fence, gate, bridge or similar public fixture by lovers at an increasing number of locations in the world to symbolize their love. Amsterdam has two such bridges but Zuiderkerk is my personal favorite.
