Lola Tour: Berlin Location 2
Die Oberbaumbrücke (Oberbaum Bridge)
One of the film's key locations is this bridge across Berlin's river Spree. The crew spent several days here shooting Franka Potente running and runningacross the Oberbaum bridge and on nearby streets.
Lola ran through the arches of the bridge's lower level.

The Oberbaumbrücke crosses the river Spree between the Schlesisches Tor U-Bahn station (west) and Warschauer Str. S-Bahn station (east). (See online map link below.) Before the Wall came down, it was a pedestrian-only border crossing (for West-Berliners only). The bridge, not far from the East Side Gallery section of the Berlin Wall, was first completed in 1894. After Berlin's two halves were reunited, a careful restoration took place from 1993 to 1994. Today the Oberbaumbrücke allows pedestrians, motor vehicles and U-Bahn Line 1 (U1) to cross the Spree in renewed style. This same bridge is also seen in THE BOURNE SUPREMACY. (Also see the bridge photo on the first page of the Lola locations tour.)
