Pont Neuf

Towering over the waters of the River Seine in the heart of Paris, Pont Neuf is one of the oldest and most iconic bridges in the city. Begun in 1578 by order of King Henri III and completed in 1607, this historic structure is considered Paris' bridge between the past and the present. Although its name means "New Bridge", Pont Neuf is today the oldest surviving bridge in Paris.


Pont Neuf has brought many technical and aesthetic innovations. With a total length of 232 meters, the bridge is notable for its wide and straight pedestrian paths. This distinguishes it from other bridges of its period and represents a modern understanding that prioritizes pedestrian traffic. The 384 mask-shaped decorations on the bridge reflect the artistic understanding of the period and the mastery of the artisans.


Pont Neuf is not only an architectural masterpiece, but also a symbol that has witnessed important events in the history of Paris. The bridge has been the epicenter of social life and communal events, as well as a point of passage for strolls along the Seine and between the city's historic districts.


Today, Pont Neuf is a popular destination for Parisians and tourists from around the world. Walks over the bridge offer stunning views of the Seine and the historic skyline of the Ile de la Cité. From Pont Neuf, the timeless beauty of Paris and its rich cultural heritage dating back to prehistoric times are revealed.


Pont Neuf is a monument, a meeting point and a living textbook of the city's history, standing over the Seine, the lifeblood of Paris. The stones of this bridge have stood for centuries in the heart of Paris, creating a profound link between the city's past and its future.
