Spandau is one of the Berlin’s largest boroughs and its roots are traced back to the thirteenth century when it was founded as a medieval fortress town. The Zitadelle Berlin (Citadel), the borough’s most impressive historical monument, is few minutes’ walk from Spandau old town. One of the best-preserved Renaissance fortresses in all Europe, the Citadel not only boasts many fascinating treasures but also long bastion walls, up to four metres thick with vaulted corridors which attracts around 10,000 bats for their winter hibernation regularly. Just a few steps further, one can find the quaint cobbled streets and alleyways of the Kolk quarter, the oldest part of Spandau. An Eighth century Saint Mary’s Church (the Marienkirche), lies among trees set back from the banks of Havel river.
