Bike Touring Highlight
The name Friedrichsgracht or Friedrichsgraben became common in the second half of the 17th century, when Friedrich Wilhelm von Brandenburg (1620–1688, called: the Great Elector) had the branch of the Spree canalised by Dutch specialists. The name referred to the part of the Spreearm, which today runs between Inselbrücke and Gertraudenbrücke in the historic district of Alt-Kölln.
The name Friedrichsgracht was later transferred to the embankment road laid out between 1670 and 1681 as part of the fortress construction and the regulation of the left arm of the Spree, which moved the entire southern part of Alt-Kölln from the Spree.
