Throughout the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, Berlin was "The CityOfSpies" (a title that has also been held by Lisbon, Tangiers, Beirut, Istanbul, and {{Casablanca}} at various points in their history), and the Glienicke Bridge, which links (West) Berlin and Potsdam, was the most well-known venue for the exchange of captured spies. SpyFiction from that period will almost always mention Berlin.

WeimarGermany's Berlin is a very vibrant and colourful place, comparable with Paris. TruthInTelevision here. Portrayals focus on the development of Cabaret culture, sexual egalitarianism and great night-life. Some fictions even portray it as a CityNoir setting. Interestingly a lot of the classic writers and directors of FilmNoir -- Creator/BillyWilder, Robert Siodmak, Creator/FritzLang -- were Berliners during the 20s and many of them admitted in interviews that their films about the American underbelly were often inspired by their memories of 20s Berlin, which came very close to resembling the exaggerated CityNoir landscape beloved in later fictions.
