Long Description:
The Mühlesteg is a foot bridge that crosses the Limmat River in central Zurich. We conservatively estimate that there were 3,000 padlocks on the bridge as of July 2014.

"The present iron Mühlesteg was constructed as a footbridge in 1981. It links the right bank of the Limmat, the Limmatquai, with the left bank, the Bahnhofquai, and its name indicates the historical role of the part of the Limmat located between Rudolf Brun-Brücke and Bahnhofbrücke. Here, where the ­river is wide and today flows freely, there existed two narrow bridges: the Untere Mühlesteg, located upstream from the present Bahnhofbrücke and the Obere Mühlesteg, ­situated downstream from the Rudolf Brun-Brücke."
