Formerly this iconic bridge marked the border between East and West and there was a time when it was closed to all civilians. The Cold War parties sometimes exchanged spies here. Today the bridge separates the districts of Kreuzberg and can be crossed. Berlin counts 916 bridges (that's more than twice as much as Venice) and this is arguably the most beautiful one. It´s situated at a scenic spot of the river Spree and makes for taking perfect pictures to both sides of it.
