The “Spy Bridge” is the Glienicker Brücke, a bridge that links Berlin’s Wannsee neighborhood with Potsdam.
The bridge got this moniker from the media because it served as the scene of three espionage exchanges during the Cold War: in 1962, 1985, and 1986.
The Glienicke Bridge and its history of spy swapping have already been the subject of films like “Funeral in Berlin” from 1966 and Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies” from 2015, starring Tom Hanks.
