Lübeck - Love padlocks / Love bridge
Germany

Love padlocks (also known as Love Locks) are custom-modified padlocks by which sweethearts affix padlocks to a fence or similar public fixture to symbolize their everlasting love. They are most commonly placed on the railings of bridges. In 2011, sweethearts began to affix their locks to the new pedestrian bridge in Lübeck, An der Obertrave, straight in front of the Musikhochschule. This bridge was, by the way, not yet shown (just as under construction) in Google Earth as for October 2011, so the location in the middle of the Trave river is okay, and the bridge is really existing - no rendering here. :)

For weeks, a dispute over the "Lübeck love bridge" was a tempered debate subject. Finally, an amicable solution has been found. Rather than attachning the padlocks to the stainless stee bridge railing, one should attach them in the future to the chains which were specially mounted on the bridge.

The mayor Mr. Bernd Saxe appealed to all romantics to apply their locks only to the chains. There, they established no harm, he said, stressing that the city had nothing against the love padlocks itself. "They were only removed because the metal has led to corrosion and the struts of the bridge railings were bent. "If the space provided is not enough, we will post more chains," Saxe promised.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
