The Spandau Citadel is considered one of the most important and best preserved Renaissance fortresses in Europe. It was built by Italian architects in the 16th century, when medieval castles lost their importance with the development of firearms. In times of crisis, it was to take over the protection of the royal seat Berlin-Cölln and serve as a place of refuge.

A walk through the fortress is an experience all year round.

The Citadel is open daily.
