Near the Reichstag building in Berlin. In the last days of the Battle of Berlin, the bridge acquired strategic importance when units of the Red Army led the attack on the Reichstag building, unaware that the Reichstag had not been used as such for years. In fact, from 1943 to 1945, it housed a sick bay, an air raid shelter, and the gynecological ward of the nearby Charité hospital. About 60-100 children were born in the Reichstag building.
