Love Padlocks
Managed By: Icon Here Padlock Lovers
Our goal at 'Love Padlocks' is to locate and waymark love padlock locations all over the world.
Expanded Description:
"Love padlocks (also known as love locks and, in Taiwan, wish locks) are a custom by which padlocks are affixed to a fence, gate, bridge or similar public fixture by sweethearts to symbolize their everlasting love." Wikipedia

Love Padlocks at the bridge 'Hohenzollernbrücke' in Cologne, Germany:

Some more examples:
Love padlocks in Hungary
Love padlocks in China
Love padlocks in Russia
Love padlocks in the USA

The minimum of padlocks to qualify for a new waymark is about 10 padlocks. You don't have to count them but if there are too less, it's boring and uninteresting.
Instructions for Posting a Love Padlocks Waymark:
All posts to this category must include the GPS coordinates taken by the waymarker himself with at least two pictures, one of the entire structure and one with detail view of the padlocks.

For naming please use the name of the structure, state and country in the title. For example "Hohenzoller Bridge - Köln, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany" or "Ponte Milvio Bridge – Rome, Italy". This will provide a consistent naming convention.

A detailed description of your Love Padlock structure is always appreciated, such as when it was built, history. If your Love Padlock structure has any other unusual or unique features or history that you feel others would enjoy viewing or knowing, additional pictures and information are always welcome.

Please fill out as many variables as you can.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
To post a log to an existing Love Padlock waymark, you will need to post a unique picture of the structure taken by you. Including your GPS device in the picture is not necessary!

I don't think London has got into this Love Padlock thing yet but one or two people are trying to make it happen on the Millennium Bridge.
