Glienicke Bridge

The Glienicke Bridge, also known as the “Bridge of Spies,” is a historic bridge that spans the Havel River in Germany, connecting the Wannsee district of Berlin with the Brandenburg capital of Potsdam. The bridge gained its nickname during the Cold War era due to its use for spy exchanges between the United States and the Soviet Union.

During the Cold War, the Glienicke Bridge served as a crossing point between East Germany (under Soviet control) and West Berlin (controlled by the Allies). It became a symbol of the divided city and was the site of several high-profile spy exchanges between the United States and the Soviet Union. These exchanges were dramatized in the 2015 film “Bridge of Spies,” directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks.

Today, the Glienicke Bridge is a popular tourist attraction, drawing visitors interested in its history and Cold War significance. It stands as a reminder of the tensions and intrigue that characterized the era of divided Germany.
