Notes from Cologne, Germany – Hohenzollern Bridge
The length of the Hohenzollern Bridge in Cologne a little bit more than 400 meters, but one side of the bridge is fully occupied by rainbow colors of the love padlocks. The bridge was constructed in 1907, and was one of the most important bridges in Germany during the World War II.
Since 2008 people started to put pad locks on the fence of one side of the bridge. By the way, the operator of the bridge is Deutche Bahn, and at some point the company threatened to cut all the locks, but end up keeping them due to public opposition to a plan.
