Europe's Most Beautiful Urban Bridge?

If you had to chose only one bridge in a European city that you've seen what would be the most comeliest?

To me it's hands-down Tower Bridge, London!

What about you? And beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

probably Pont Alexandre III in Paris or Charles Bridge in Prague (minus the people).

I think we should expand this to Europe's top five bridges!

I'll add Charles Bridge too

Rialto

Ponte Vecchio

Cologne's main railway bridge - said to be busiest in Europe - ordinary train tressle but huge and so busy - love walking across it - all the trains trundling constantly across it -beauty in eye f beholder for sure!

Agree with Christina’s choices.

Adding beautiful bridges of St.Petersburg. My favorites are bridges over Griboedov Canal: the Bridge of Four Lions and Bank Bridge. Also, famous Anichkov Bridge with four statues of The Horse Tamers over Fontanka River, one of the city landmarks.

Pont du Gard in Provence and the Chain Bridge in Budapest.

Oops, I guess Pont du Gard is not exactly "urban!" Sorry.

In no particular order, and just a few of my faves:
Erasmusbrug, Rotterdam,
the Squinty Bridge (Clyde Arc) Glasgow,
Millenium Bridge, Gateshead
Infinity Bridge, Stockton on Tees
Vasco Da gama, Lisbon.

Yes I love modern bridges.

I love modern bridges too and Vasco da Gama Bridge is one of my favorites. We also loved the 6 bridges cruise in Porto - six modern bridges over the Douro River are truly spectacular.

And Pont du Gard is not a bridge, it is an aquaduct.
