L♥ve Locks Around The World (Interactive Map)


My goal is to document as many known ‘Love Lock’ locations Around the World. Do you know of any more ‘Love Lock’ locations that are not on the map yet, please share them in the comment section so i can add them to the map! 🙂

A ‘love lock’ or ‘love padlock’ is a padlock which lovers, sweethearts or individuals lock to a bridge, fence, gate, or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Typically their names or initials are inscribed on the padlock and the key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love.
Since the 2000s, love locks have proliferated at an increasing number of locations worldwide. They are now mostly treated by municipal authorities as litter or vandalism due to the damage they can cause, public safety, and the cost of removing the padlocks. However, there are authorities who embrace them and who use them as fundraising projects, art or tourism attractions.
So please remember before you hang your ‘Love Lock’ somewhere that you have permission to do so!
