Oberbaumbrücke is a so called double deck bridge. Because there is a deck for cars and the subway up top. It was part of a wall built in 1732 which marked the city boundry (Berlin Brandenburg). The bridge served as a city gate back then.

Today Oberbaumbrücke is inside the city of Berlin. The gothic towered bridge crosses the river Spree and interconnects the districts Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain.
