Whole of last week I would walk across Isar river to reach work. Once I stopped on the river bridge to watch the beautiful river, which is when for the first time I saw many little locks on bridge’s railing, ah cute; but why there are so many locks, there must be a reason. Same evening I started to Google why there are locks on river bridge. My key words were ‘wishing locks’ – nothing, ‘wishing locks on bridge’ – nothing, ‘locks locks locks…’ – nothing, ‘locks on river’ – yay! Then started a long reading of rituals of love locks.
This is interesting and you can do it yourself! First you need a lover and you should be his/her lover too. Next any of you can go to the nearest local market and buy a fancy lock, get your initials engraved on the lock. Tip: You can use a permanent marker and write it yourself. The next step is important, pay attention; both of the sweethearts go to the river’s bridge(don’t forget to carry to lock and key). Hand in hand lock the lock on bridge’s railing, close your eyes and throw the key in river. You’re done! Like the lock which will be locked on the bridge forever your love is also locked for each other forever, ah sweet. Well technically the lock can be removed, there are forgers. But let’s assume that lock is going to stay there forever, like your love.
PS: It is a crime to love lock on bridges
