Pont de Bir Hakeim – a magnificent landmark near Sezz Paris

Summer is the perfect time to discover Paris, and at Hotel Sezz you’re never too far from a unique and exciting landmark or attraction – such as the Pont de Bir Hakeim which links the elegant 15th and 16th arrondissements. Guests who are visiting for the next trade shows in Paris are sure to enjoy exploring the bridge and river on days off.

The Pont de Bir Hakeim is one of the most beautiful bridges across the River Seine, and is just a few steps from the hotel. Formerly known as the Passy Bridge, it was renamed in 1948 to commemorate the battle of Bir Hakeim. The Pont de Bir Hakeim is made from steel and was erected between 1903 and 1905, and this listed historical monument is one of many bridges that connect the right and left banks of the Seine.

The bridge is particularly appreciated for its fine architecture and has appeared in many films and music videos. Some of its most notable roles have been in ‘Last Tango in Paris’ with Marlon Brando, ‘Inception’ with Leonardo di Caprio, ‘National Treasure: Book of Secrets’ with Nicolas Cage and ‘Peur sur la Ville’ with Jean-Paul Belmondo.
