Take a walk or ride across this bridge for amazing views of the city. Once you reach half way there are hundreds of padlocks where lovers have written their names and locked them to the wire safety rail.

Best time to walk across is at sunset. You will have a most amazing view of Stockholm. If you are not in the mood for walking take the regular bus.
