Love locks (or love padlocks) are a custom by which padlocks are affixed to a fence, gate, bridge or similar public fixture by lovers at an increasing number of locations in the world to symbolize their love.
Amsterdam has two known locations, where romantic couples leave locks, both classic Dutch draw bridges:
- Staalmeestersbrug, the bridge that crosses the Groenburgwal. A very popular photo location, with the beautiful Zuiderkerk tower in the background.
- The Magere brug (or Skinny Bridge) that crosses the river Amstel.
