A walk through Spandau
On 23 February 2017, the group decided to explore the old town of Spandau on foot. They met at the historical Nikolai church and walked along the Havel river promenade. On the area where Spree and Havel merge, the group turned right heading towards Spandau town hall in order to have a view of its more than 100 meter long front side. After passing through pedestrian zone through the town centre direction back to the church, they crossed the main road and entered the park behind the Spandau brewery. The view of the Havel river that appears like a large lake contained by the Spandau watergate was really beautiful. The group strolled along main street with a great view of the watergate which retains its function for many centuries.
The main attraction of the tour was the citadel of Spandau which was built during the Renaissance era. We walked inside the walls around the fortress and enjoyed the view of the Havel from the top of one of the massive walls. The visit to the historical town museum and the climb to the massive Julius Tower to marvel the incredible view ended the tour.
