Big Balls of Love from Bavaria

A Love lock in Glacisbrücke,BayernGlacis

It’s not as posh & glamorous as the padlocks in Pont des Arts in  Paris nor in the picturesque Mount Huangshan, Lotus Peak in Anhui , China or in Cologne, Germany.  It doesn’t even resemble to the colorful padlocks that I have seen hanging in the tiny bridges in the canals of Amsterdam.

If you don’t see it as romantic, then what is it?

After all, they are just-padlocks.They all glittered and sparkled in the sun — an oddly beautiful mosaic above the river. A real magnet for any visitors. But for someone who fell in love madly, the kind of over-the-heels kind, for those who once were in-love, was in-love, and still in-love,a sight of this makes a skip in our heart.

Forever Love in Bavaria

At this time of the year, and right here in my own side of the world, I catch a rare glimpse of one particular padlock. One misty morning in my Bavarian Wandertags, there I saw it in the Glacisbrücke. Its hanging there in the cold, drenched & glistened with dew of the early fog. Resilient and strong.

Call it romantic, or cheesy gesture or pledge of undying love. Yet this padlock is simple, bold, heavy, & original.

Just a Big Balls of Love.

The lock of love is the same for its ultimate purpose– wherever it is, a symbol of binding the same love. Same lock.

  1. Not a fan of love locks unfortunately, except for pictures! I’m happy they’ve taken them off the Pont des Arts in Paris as they were not such a great addition to the sight/site and were a threat for a possible bridge collapse, had they been more numerous; they were relocated on a square where they’re not a threat anymore.
    But, as I said, I enjoy their colors and messages ad have taken quite a few pictures of them when encountered in different places.
    Never been to Bavaria, though…
