Historical with quite a story behind it and now a hollywood film. Very good to see and something worth doing if you have time, so much happened here. You can visit and cross the bridge or take a boat underneath it.

Historical site as featured in the movie with Tom Hanks. The bridge itself is simple and not impressive but the view from it is amazing. A must visit when in Potsdam.
