  • Historical site as featured in the movie with Tom Hanks. The bridge itself is simple and not impressive but the view from it is amazing. A must visit when in Potsdam.  more »
  • As featured in "Bridge of Spies" this is the spot where Gary Powers came back from the cold. Fascinating stories and the mid-point is marked for photo opportunities. Lovely spot too!  more »
  • I had seen the movie Bridge of Spies with Tom Hanks, and now walked across the same bridge myself. Really weird to think of what happened here years ago, definitely a must see when you visit Potsdam.  more »

  • Very beautiful and historically important landmark. Take your time strolling through the surroundings for some nice picture opportunities.
  • Watched Bridge of spies with Tom Hanks which filmed a portion of the film here so I wanted to visit. Definitely was worth the trip.
  • In ColdWar, HavelRiver and Glienicker Brücke as the formed border between West Berlin and East Germany. The place has a Goodview for Teifer See.
  • This was where spies were exchanged during the cold war. One half of the Bridge was in the east the other the west. It's also near a great place to go swimming.
  • Have you seen the Bridge of Spies? Not the movie by Steven Spielberg staring Tom Hanks about the exchange of spies during the Cold War. I meant the actual bridge where the exchange of spies actually took place, the very same one from the movie. Say hello to the Glienicke Bridge. The very first exchange, the Powers-Abel exchange, become the major plot of the movie and was filmed here. The Havel River is the border between East and West of Cold War Germany. I don't have the same cinematography skills as Steven Spielberg, so the Glienicke Bridge doesn't look the same without the night darkness and blinding flood lights. Speaking of which, time to rewatch the movie and see if I missed out any interesting locations from Berlin.
