History laden river crossing where East met West. Nearby is the route of the wall along the water banks. A brass strip on the bridge marks the border.

Amazing bridge at the end of the tram line (Tram 93, terminus) in Potsdam, it spans the water border between Potsdam and Berlin, so was an important border when Berlin was divided. The bridge was damaged in the war and restored. It was used during the cold war to occasionally swap spies and featured in the Tom Hanks film, Bridge of spies. Lots of information boards on the bridge all about it’s history. Even if you are not interested in the history, its a nice walk over the water and you can watch people paddle boarding and going past on boats.

Fun to see and hear about history and some good views, but not especially appealing visually. Historical significance is the main draw.

Otherwise known as the bridge of spies this was a checkpoint to pass from the American sector into East Germany. Many famous spy exchanges happened here including the Gary Powers exchange. History you can see and feel!

There is not much to see so do read up before you come. You need to propel yourself back in time when this was the spy exchange, and let your mind do some imagining. The spot is beautiful. We took a tram here. I don't know anything about the river ferries but they run past here. I wish we had read up on the options to get here; the ferry seems idyllic.

Easy to get to from Potsdam main train station using the tram which was every 10 minutes. A lovely view from the bridge and it looked like you could get a ferry from there. Nearby Glienicker Villa is worth a look too.

Well worth the effort to get there. We took the S Bahn to Potsdam. Outside the station are trams. I think it was no92 (or 93) marked Glienicke bridge. Short walk from the last stop. It's is a very impressive bridge. The views are lovely as well, but it was t he spy exchange history that made us visit. Not a bad little cafe in the building by the park entrance. Going back the tram stop much nearer the bridge

This is a bridge across the Havel River near Potsdam. Tram line 93 from the city center terminates just south of the bridge.

During the Cold War the bridge was closed to the public, but the Western Allied and the Soviet used it for the exchange of prisoners. It has also appeared in a number of spy films, symbolizing the division during the Cold War.

The bridge was reopened in November 1989.

If you chose the time when cars are not driving the bridge: at night or in the morning - you will feel the history of the place and maybe even emotions. Today just a bridge, once upon a time a dark link between the east and the west. Be sure to watch Bridge of Spies (2015) first. And give yourself some time on the bridge. Take your time, and you may feel the vibrations of history.
