"Oberbaumbrücke" Bridges Tip by barryg23
Bridges, Berlin: 5 reviews and 11 photos
Of all the bridges I saw crossing the Spree, the Oberbaumbrücke was the most impressive. The bridge connects the districts of Friedrichshain in the east of the city to Kreuzberg to the west.
From 1963 to 1989, while the city was divided, Oberbaumbrücke was closed to traffic. It was officially part of East Berlin and used as a pedestrian border crossing for west Berliners.
There are great views of the bridge from the East-Side Gallery to the north or from the banks of the Spree to the south.
