The Pont de Bir-Hakeim is a bridge over the Seine in Paris, which has been a protected monument since 1986. The original pedestrian bridge was inaugurated for the world exhibition of 1878 and still bore the name "Passerelle de Passy". A road bridge was erected between 1903 and 1906 as "Viaduc de Passy". A viaduct of the Metro is underneath, where pedestrians can cross the Seine. The piers are adorned by cast-iron figures representing seafarers and blacksmiths. In 1949, the bridge was renamed "Pont de Bir-Hakeim" to commemorate the Battle of Bir Hakeim in the Second World War. The promenade is very popular for strollers and has served as a film set, most recently for the film "Inception" (2010).
