The Old Town of Spandau

Having the largest interconnected pedestrian area of Berlin, Spandau’s Old Town has approximately 300 retail stores, restaurants and service providers adding to the classic stroll and shopping streets of the capital. Remains of the ancient city walls, half-timbered buildings and vaulted cellars and especially the Church of St. Nicholas – a cradle of the Reformation in Berlin- Brandenburg, bear witness to Spandau’s eventful past.

Modern Living in Historic Walls

The Spandau Citadel is a historical monument that has sustainably influenced the development of Spandau and is now home to numerous museums.
After extensive renovation of the old provisions magazine and the former barracks the new museum with a cultural and historical permanent exhibition “Revealed. Berlin and its Monuments”. will open at the end of 2014. The exhibition is devoted to political monuments that dominated Berlin’s cityscape since the 18th century. Hardly any monuments are still in the place for which they were originally planned. Numerous monuments were placed elsewhere, torn down, placed in depots or even buried. In the exhibition these will be made available to the public again.

Guided tours in German are also offered in not publicly accessible areas of the Citadel and in the Old Town of Spandau.

Already in it’s tenth year, the best-preserved Renaissance fortress in northern Europe also offers probably one of the most atmospheric open-air stages of the capital: every summer, in the courtyard of the old fortress, the Citadel Music Festival offers performances and concerts from some of the biggest names in the international music scene together with an international audience. Whether it’s Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, Nigel Kennedy, Roxette and several
others, many have already left their musical calling card.
