  • Have you seen the Spielberg movie Spionernes bro, do you know the history of the bridge. Today it is just a bridge and a transport option, but during the cold war, it was on this very Bridge East and West exchanged spies. There is something particularly thrilling to think back on how close they were to each other right here, that one sat on each side and lurked on one another.

  • It is a bridge that crosses the river Havel, famous because during the cold war exchanges of prisons, were recently immortalized by S. Spielberg on the film "The bridge" with Tom Hank.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
