There are many, many bridges in Berlin, but there are not many as popular as the Admiralsbrücke in Kreuzberg. The Admiralsbrücke is not only a beautiful bridge, it also exudes a romantic charm that acts as a true magnet during summer season. You have a great view over the Landwehrkanal and magnificent sunsets.
The bridge dates back to 1882. The bridge railing, as well as the lamp posts, are still in their original state. The bridge spans over the wonderful Landwehrkanal and connects the Fränkelufer with the Planufer. Since the 1990th this bridge is under monument protection and is only open to pedestrians. Numerous people come here to sit on the bridge, relax and spend whole days and evenings here when the weather is good and the sun is shining. There have been some problems with residents, when party people started to occupy this spot, drinking and playing loud music all night long. For a couple of years now you have to leave the bridge at 10 p.m. Police is enforcing this curfew. Now the wild parties are over, but the bridge is still packed at night until the curfew kicks in, as people come to watch the sun set and chill out with friends. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, kind of like an urban summer camp.
A little bit of the Berlin vibe that attracts so many people can be captured here.
