Citadel - A Renaissance Masterpiece

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.

Address
Zitadelle Berlin

Am Juliusturm 64 13599  Berlin


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

The Citadel is open daily.

Special highlight:  

The 40-meter-long installation in the outdoor space of the exhibition of the same name "SPREE-Cuts" by Götz Lemberg is open to visitors*.  

The museums and exhibitions of the Citadel, the Gothic House, the Gallery Historical Cellar and the Kulturhaus Spandau are closed. All planned events during this period will unfortunately have to be cancelled.
