Tips

    Thousands of love locks hang on the Hohenzollern Bridge, with which Cologne residents and tourists in love erect a monument to their love.

    One of Cologne's bridge connections between the city center on the left bank of the Rhine and Deutz on the so-called "Schääl Sick", which pedestrians like to use. If you come from the Deutz side, you will notice that this bridge leads to the cathedral in a dead straight line. Therefore, after passing the bridge, the railway trains have to make a sharp turn to get to the main station. A slightly different route for the bridge would therefore have been much cheaper for traffic engineering, but those "up there" deliberately wanted this line to the cathedral.

    The Hohenzollern Bridge is a bridge over the Rhine in Cologne at river kilometer 688.5. Built from 1907 to 1911, the original structure consisted of two railway bridges and one road bridge. After 1945, only two railway bridges were rebuilt, with a third later added.

    It is best to take the train over the bridge. Then you realize how busy the bridge is.

    It is also the bridge of lovers, as can be seen easily from the countless locks that decorate the railing.

    Alone because of the love locks, the bridge is a highlight. But it is also impressive how the trains roll over the bridge every minute.

    The Hohenzollern Bridge is the bridge most heavily loaded with steel locks in the area. Lovers have been setting up steel locks here for decades.
    From the Hohenzollern bridge fantastic views are possible.

    The Hohenzollern Bridge was built from 1907 to 1911. The Hohenzollern Bridge is the only bridge in Cologne that has not been destroyed by bombs. Rather, it took over the Wehrmacht on March 6, 1945 itself to complicate the approaching Allies by blowing up the bridge a crossing of the Rhine.

    One of the highlights in Cologne.
    Especially in the evening when it is dark. It is also one of the most popular photo opportunities in Cologne. All the castles on the bridge are breathtaking.

    At the grid fence on the bridge you will find thousands of love locks. Nice view of the old town and the Rhine.

    The Hohenzollern Bridge, with the neighboring main train station, is one of the most important junctions in the German and European railway network and is an impressive building that is an outstanding part of the cityscape of Cologne. ....
