citadel sits on an island where the rivers Havel and Spree meet and was designed to protect the town of Spandau, then a village outside Berlin but now well within city limits.

Die Zitadelle Spandau bietet den idealen Hintergrund für Mittelalterliche Feste und Ritterspiele. Sie ist eines der wenigen mittelalterlichen Gebäude, die nicht zerstört wurden. Neben Ritterlanzen, Schwertern und Minnegesängen erklingen hier jedoch auch modernere Klänge. Viele große Konzerte finden hier statt. In den Gewölben findet man Kunsthandwerk und auch echte Fledermäuse kann man besuchen.
