Oberbaumbrücke Bridge

  • Views 964

Very close to East Side Gallery, the Spree River (which divides the east and west Berlin) will see this valuable bridge of the nineteenth century. Its structure is concrete but the red bricks that cover the damage and the appearance of Mozarabic Neo-Gothic. Before the unification of Berlin, the bridge was closed to traffic for more than 12 years since that connected neighborhoods opposite the wall (could only use people with valid documents). With the fall of the wall the bridge has recovered its function and is now a symbol of freedom and brotherhood. It is worth upgrading to the western side of the wall to gaze at the view of the river Spree and the bridge that has changed with time and the history of its symbology.
