Tips

  • Lemmi alias Schlumpf

    The two animal figures were decorative elements on the old steel bridge, which was blown up in 1945 and replaced by a concrete bridge.

    Originally there were four figures: two otters and two greyhounds. After the new building, the otter was put back in its place, the greyhounds remain missing. The view from the bridge is fantastic.

    Very nice place to rest and rest. On sunny weekends many thirsty and hungry day-trippers meet here.

    Imposing figures that are well suited to photo motives in between.

    The figures were made in 1910 as decorative elements for the first steel tree garden bridge. Of the original four figures (two otters and two greyhounds), only two have returned to their original location.

    Nice place for a short break and to enjoy the wide view over the lake after the forest:

    Eight days before the end of the Second World War, the Baumgarten Bridge, including the then 4 bronze sculptures (2 greyhounds & 2 wild cats), was blown up by the Wehrmacht. In the course of the reconstruction, Russian pioneers found the 4 sculptures and brought them to their new home in the Brandenburg town of Wünsdorf to the bunkers Maybach I and II, the established High Command of the Soviet Occupation Forces West, where they adorned the entrance portal of the General Staff building.
    Fortunately, about 50 years later, an attentive woman from Geltow discovered the two cat sculptures when they were accidentally filmed during a television broadcast. With the help of a colonel from the Henning von Treskow barracks, the citizens' initiative that was set up was able to recover the two sculptures and put them back on the Baumbartenbrücke on September 6, 1994, while there is still no trace of the greyhounds.

    After citizens recognized the sculptures in reports about the Wünsdorf area after the fall of the Wall, the two sculptures of the otter came back to their historical place on September 6, 1994 with the help of the Brandenburg state government.

    I have to confess I don't like bridges because of my fear of heights: D!
