Berlin Oberbaum Bridge

Berlin Oberbaum Bridge


One of the most beautiful bridges in Berlin

The Oberbaum Bridge connects the Berlin districts of Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain. An early wooden bridge on this site was replaced in 1894-1896 by the current neo-Gothic bridge form, which was then, however, severely damaged during the Second World War and closed with the division of Berlin. It was not until the Weidervereinigung that the bridge regained its present form and is one of the most beautiful bridges in Berlin. Since 1896 it has connected the districts of Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg across the Spree. It got its name because the Oberbaum, where customs duties were collected, was once located on the bridge.
