Magical place if you can feel it
Aug 2020
If you chose the time when cars are not driving the bridge: at night or in the morning - you will feel the history of the place and maybe even emotions. Today just a bridge, once upon a time a dark link between the east and the west. Be sure to watch Bridge of Spies (2015) first. And give yourself some time on the bridge. Take your time, and you may feel the vibrations of history.

Bridge of Spies movie location well worth the visit
Oct 2019
Easy access from Berlin by train, good tram and bus services around the bridge, and good brewery restaurants in the park. Highly enjoyable even if you are not a movie buff.

Well worth a visit, short interesting walk from Posdam . It’s remind you of a divided nation now together and so strong. But we must never forget the hardship the East Germans endured for too long.

Even thought it's a nice enough bridge, only knowing the history would make it special and worth seeing.

Also where they filmed the movie "Bridge of Spies"

inspiring bridge at the frontier of the former East Germany and Berlin area, crossing the lovely river with views on lake and forest.

For so many years this bridge was a link between East and West. You just have to watch “Bridge of Spies” movie after visiting it.

Good historical place to visit
Dec 2019
Of course now it's just a bridge, but if you have watched the movie Bridge of spies you will look at it with different eyes, I went there on a winter late afternoon, with the sun that was going down, it's easy to imagine the security check points, the sniper posts and the spies' exchange, you were on a real border, which is still actually there, east and west separated by the lake.
It's easy to reach it from Berlin by public transport, you just need to take the U7 to Wansee and there the bus N°316 from the head of the line to the other head of the line which is exactly on the end of the bridge.
The place itself is rather beautiful because you are near the lake, there are forests and paths to walk around

Where's That Confounded Bridge?
Jan 2020
Wow! I finally get to quote a Led Zeppelin line from Dyer Maker. I get it, how can a bridge get a five rating. Well, for historical purposes. See the Bridge Of Spies with Tom Hanks and you will appreciate this place even more. Where else can you stand over water and straddle East and West Berlin? As a retired Air Force officer and having met Gary Powers' grandson, this was an exciting place to visit. I closed my eyes and imagined what the long, cold walk to freedom meant for Gary Powers and Col Rudolf Abel.

Bridge of Spies

The bridge separating east for west and where many spies, prisoners of war were exchanged. Interesting and very pretty location with a really good restaurant/cafe on the river 5 mins walk away in a restored norwegian boat shed.
