About this spot
Makartsteg Bridge, spanning the Salzach River in Salzburg, Austria, is a notable pedestrian bridge known for its unique charm and cultural significance. Named after the 19th-century painter Hans Makart, this modern steel-and-concrete bridge connects the old town with the new part of the city. It's especially famous for its "love locks," where couples attach padlocks as a symbol of their love. Offering picturesque views of Salzburg's historic skyline, the Hohensalzburg Fortress, and the surrounding Alps, Makartsteg Bridge is not just a convenient crossing point but also a popular spot for both locals and tourists, providing a perfect backdrop for photography and leisurely strolls.
