Potsdam Glienicker Bridge

Potsdam Glienicker Bridge


Place of German history

The Glienicke Bridge in Potsdam is without doubt one of the most historically significant bridges in the region. The steel truss construction dating from 1907 was initially used as a border crossing between Potsdam and West Berlin from 1949. Since the bridge was completely closed to private traffic, prisoners and agents were often exchanged here during the Cold War. Today, the Glienicke Bridge is considered the most important road connection between Potsdam and Berlin and is an attraction for tourists. The view from the bridge of Potsdam with Babelsberg Palace and Park, Sacrow Church of the Savior, Glienicke Palace and Lenné’s garden landscapes is also unique.
