Best Hikes to Oberbaumbrücke
  • Carola „Bandit“ K.

    The view over the Spree is unique. In the distance you can spot the illuminated Red City 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.

  • ... 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.

  • Not only does road traffic pass through it, but also Berlin's oldest subway line. The supporting structure for the tracks on the mezzanine was architecturally clad and decorated with medieval-looking decorations. Otto Stahn created a building that resembles a castle in the Mark Brandenburg.

  • 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 to replace 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 Oberbaumbrücke is one of the most beautiful and imposing bridges in Berlin. Built in 1896, it connects the districts of Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg across the Spree. On the bridge there was once the upper tree, where customs duties were collected.

  • In February 1990, during the carnival season, I wasn't allowed to go to West Berlin because I didn't have a visa. There I am with the S-Bahn to Treptow and over 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.

  • 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.

  • The Oberbaum Bridge is an imposing bridge that spans the River Spree and connects Kreuzberg with Friedrichshain. The bridge is known for its distinctive spiers and red color that contrasts beautifully with the blue of the water and the gray of the surrounding buildings.

    The bridge has a long history and was once a symbol of separation when the Berlin Wall was still standing. Construction of the bridge was completed in 1895 and it became a major transportation hub in the city. During World War II the bridge was damaged but rebuilt in the 1950s.

    After reunification, the bridge was renovated in 1994 and became an important symbol of the city's unity. Since then, the Oberbaum Bridge has become a popular spot for both tourists and locals.

    Besides the history of the bridge, there are many reasons why you should visit this place. The view from the bridge is breathtaking, especially when the sun goes down and the city lights come on. A walk across the bridge is also a great experience that gives you a glimpse of the city's life and culture.

    In the vicinity of the bridge you will find many restaurants, cafes and bars offering a wide variety of food and drinks. The area is also known for its street art scene and the many clubs and bars that are among the best in the city.
