A major spot for tourists, the Pont des Arts has long been known for the Cadenas d'Amour that lovers lock over the bridge, till it reached 45 tons of love, whcih came to be a threat to the safety for the bridge. Yet, to keep the Pont des Arts a touristic spot as it had always been, Mehdi Ben Cheikh, founder and director of the Itinerrance Gallery- who had already worked on the Tour Paris 13 - and four international street art artists, Brusk, Jace, and eL Seed Pantónio, are working to replace the Cadenas d'amour with ephemeral works on the theme of love and Paris. 

The new version of the Pont des Arts is to discover from Monday, June 8, 2015.

Guests staying at Hotel Cambon will be within a 5 minute drive to discover the new look of the Pont des Arts, see you there!
