Glienicker Brücke

Königstraße, 14467 Berlin  

A bridge spanning the Havel river, connecting Wannsee with the Brandenburg capital, Potsdam. Spies captured during the Cold War were often exchanged here, earning it the moniker “Bridge of Spies”. The East German authorities closed the bridge to West Berliners on 27 May 1952, and was closed to East Berliners after construction of the Berlin Wall.
