Love padlocks to witness timeless love

Altebrücke, Heidelberg

In Heidelberg, too, this convention is well known and popular. The Old Bridge is very popular for couples to fix their “Love Locks” to. However, the idea of fixing the “Love Locks” to the Old Bridge is anything but welcome for protectors of historical buildings and monuments.
They think the “Love Locks” would be bad for the bridge. Nevertheless, for continuing the convention of fixing of “Love Locks” Heidelberg city put up a “Love Stone” not far away from the Old Bridge. On this “Love Stone” are metal rings to which couples can attach their “Love Locks”. In the middle of the stone there is a round hole which can be used for photos. Moreover, they engraved into the stone the love poem “Der Blick” by the German poet J. von Eichendorff. All in all it is a nice idea and a great compromise for both the protectors of the bridge and the lovers of the “Love Locks”.
