Why locals love it

Formerly this iconic bridge marked the border between East and West and there was a time when it was closed to all civilians. The Cold War parties sometimes exchanged spies here. Today the bridge separates the districts of Kreuzberg and can be crossed by many means of transport (cars, metro, bike or walking).

Why you should visit it

Berlin counts 916 bridges (that's more than twice as much as Venice) and this is arguably the most beautiful one. It´s situated at a scenic spot of the river Spree and makes for taking perfect pictures to both sides of it.

Special tip

Every summer Kreuzbergers and Friedrichshainers throw rotten tomatoes at each other in a vegetable battle between the two districts.
