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.

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.
