Pont Alexandre III

Pont Alexandre III is an arch bridge that spans the Seine, connecting the Champs-Élysées quarter and the Invalides and Eiffel Tower Quarter. Most people consider the Pont Alexandre III the most beautiful bridge in Paris.

Construction of the bridge, designed by the architects Resal and Alby, took almost 3 years. It was first prefabricated in a factory and later transported and assembled by a large crane. One of the requirements for the bridge was that it should not obstruct the view on the Invalides and Champs-Élysées This resulted in a very low 40 meters wide bridge with a single 107.5 meters long span and a height of only 6 meters.
