Google Earth Plug-in: Glienicke Bridge, Berlin, Germany

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files

Glienicke Bridge was the scene of exchanges of secret agents. It was one of the few places in the world where the United States and the Soviet Union stood directly opposite each other. And so deals could be made here without any of their allies having any say in the matter.

This bridge between West-Berlin and the former DDR was a hotspot of cold-war times. Spies were frequently exchanged between East and West at this spot. Note: Because West Berlin was an "island" in East Germany, the western part is actually on the east end of the bridge, and the eastern part is Potsdam on the _western_ side of the bridge. A bit confusing.
