The bridge is probably one of the most symbolic places when it comes to the opening of the Berlin Wall in the states of Brandenburg and Berlin. The bridge was opened for cross-border traffic on 10 November 1989 at 6 p.m. A video installation shows historical film material. Later, the building - in the middle of which a line marked the border between the GDR (Potsdam) and West Berlin - will be open for encounters between citizens. The city of Potsdam and the Berlin district of Steglitz-Zehlendorf are also taking part in the ceremony and the commemoration.
