Über die Brücke geh'n (English translation: "Crossing the Bridge") was the German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1986, performed in German by Ingrid Peters.

The song was performed fourteenth on the night (following Belgium's Sandra Kim with "J'aime la vie" and preceding Cyprus' Elpida with "Tora Zo"). At the close of voting, it had received 62 points, placing 8th in a field of 20.

The song deals with the need to "cross the bridge"; to build a link between oneself and others. As Peters sings, "We are only guests for a little time" on the planet. Peters also recorded an English version of the song, entitled "We've Got a World to Build".

It was succeeded as German representative at the 1987 Eurovision Contest by Wind with "Laß die Sonne in dein Herz".
