    The view over the Spree is unique. In the distance you will discover the illuminated Red Town Hall and the Molecule Man. The huge three-person sculpture stands where Alt-Treptow, Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg meet.

    The Oberbaumbrücke was a connection between West and East Berlin during the GDR era. The GDR wanted to demolish the bridge. Did not allow the Russians.

    After the turnaround, the Swiss architect Cala Trara was commissioned to restore the bridge. I sold the required castings for the sunbeam railing and the lamps back then. We poured them in our company. That was something special.

    After the construction of the Wall, the Oberbaum Bridge was the very first border crossing point for West Berliners.

    Probably the most beautiful bridge in Berlin. Especially from the subway, there is a great view of the Spree.

    ... supposedly the most beautiful bridge in Berlin. Here is definitely something going on and who has time or she can take, should admire the construction with the two towers (Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain). And of course the great view of the Spree.

    Here in February 1990 I was not allowed to go to West Berlin during Mardi Gras because I did not have a visa. There I am with the S-Bahn to Treptow and via the Puschkinallee border crossing. There was only a lonely border guard who waved everyone through.
    In any case, this is probably the most beautiful bridge in Berlin, I have to agree with Frank Meyer and Berlin2007.

    another view of this architectural masterpiece. Oberbaumbrücke sidewalk. This area is "populated" by many homeless people.

    As part of the inner city ring, the Oberbaumbrücke in Berlin connects the districts of Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain across the Spree and is located between the Elsenbrücke and the Schillingbrücke. It is the landmark of the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district.

    Beautiful bridge with great views in both directions. The bridge used to separate east and west. Today she connects.
    Between 1894 and 1896, the neo-Gothic structure was built, which replaced the wooden bridge and on the upper level the elevated railway tracks of the first Berlin U-Bahn line (today: lines U1 and U3), which went into operation in 1902, cross the Spree. Under the railway viaduct there is a protected pedestrian crossing in the style of a medieval cloister.

    The most beautiful bridge in Berlin used to divide East and West and today it connects it.

    The Oberbaumbrücke is the most beautiful bridge in Berlin and also a symbol of the division of the city. I've lived in Berlin since 1989 and I can still remember how East and West were separated here. It was also an experience when the subway was extended from Schlesisches Tor over the bridge. It is a bridge for pedestrians, cars, the subway and shipping on the Spree. I included the bridge in two of my hikes in March 2022.
