connects two neighborhoods, but at one time served as a border crossing between East and West Germany. It is a gorgeous two level bridge, with trains running across the top and cars and pedestrians below. Make sure to bring a raincoat, as once a year, the neighborhoods on either side of the bridge stage a water battle for mock control of the bridge.

Beautiful sunsets at the heart of Kreuzberg-Fridriecshain! Home to the punks and street vendors. Also many dealers so watch out or just enjoy :) also beware of pickpockting in this area. But don't be deterred it's worth a visit and stunning pictures.

Built in 1700, the bridge has been a symbolic landmark during the Cold War, dis-connecting the districts of Kreuzberg, in West Berlin, and Friedrichshain, East Berlin. This boroughs were divided by the Berlin Wall, and now has become an important symbol of Berlin’s unity. There are many street street artists performing, and a wonderful view of the Tv Tower.

Probably, the most beautiful bridge in Berlin. It links two very hip and trendsetting neighborhoods: Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain.
Great view of the Spree River as well.

Beautiful centuries old bridge linking Kreuzberg with Freidrichshain; pedestrians and cars cross underneath, U-Bahn trains travel on top. During the cold war it was only in use for Wessies on foot with permits. It re-opened when the Wall came down. For fans of cinema, Lola runs through the bridge during the film 'Lola Rennt' (Run Lola Run).

Die Oberbaumbrücke ist ein bekanntes Wahrzeichen Berlins, das auch immer wieder in Filmen verwendet wird, darunter in "Lola rennt", "Sense8" und der "Bourne"-Trilogie. Während die U3 über die Köpfe rattert und unten die Singer- / Songwriter Touristen begeistern, kann man einen perfekten Sonnenuntergang von hier erleben, mit Blick auf die Spree und den Fernsehturm. Gut für: Menschen, die gerade die East Side Gallery angeschaut haben. Nicht so gut für: Leute, die es ruhig mögen.

Un pont de style médiéval qui relie le quartier de l'East Side Gallery avec le quartir de Kreuzberg. Le métro passe sur ce pont et coté Kreuzberg on y trouve la fresque de street art "Leviathan"
