Oberbaum Bridge Berlin

Oberbaum Bridge Berlin

The Oberbaum Bridge Berlin in the magical light of the Blue Hour.
The photo was taken at the Festival of Lights and shows a view across the Spree to the two characteristic towers of the bridge.
The light trails of cars, ships and the subway (on the “upper level” of the bridge) convey the typical, energetic atmosphere of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg.

The Oberbaum Bridge (German: Oberbaumbrücke) has crossed the Spree River since 1895; its wooden predecessors once marked Berlin’s customs border.
During World War II, the Oberbaum Bridge was badly damaged, and after 1945 it again marked a border: that of the Iron Curtain between East and West.

With the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the Oberbaum Bridge awoke from its sad slumber, and now it once again became the connecting element between Friedrichshain (formerly East Berlin) and Kreuzberg (formerly West Berlin).

By 1995 it had been completely reconstructed, including its subway viaduct, and since then the Oberbaum Bridge has once again become one of Berlin’s most beautiful bridges.
Today, like the Brandenburg Gate, it stands as a symbol and landmark for the reunited capital.
