This is a great place to have a panoramic view (or to see the fireworks) over the last bit of Lake Mälaren, the islands of Kungsholmen (on the right), Södermalm-Långholmen (on the left) and Riddarholmen (front). Best light: afternoon and sunset. The bridge itself is an interesting engineering structure from 1936 with a double arch, an alternative connection north-south. On... More

The bridge is a steel arch construction and built during the 30th century. There are, as with so many changes the famous Buildings... More

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.
