Spandau
Small town atmosphere 
between Havel and Spree

Real Estate Spandau

Spandau is also called the “secret capital of the Havelland region”. And its residents believe anyways that they are no true Berliners, but come from “Spandau near Berlin”; and they are proud of it. Here in the west, where the Havel and Spree rivers meet, prevails a different atmosphere than in the big capital. Not only the rivers intermix here, but also the influences of city and countryside. And this mix is the reason for Spandau’s attractiveness: a district of Berlin with the charm of a small town, where most of the Berliners have never strayed.

But a trip to the west is always worth it. The beautiful historic city of Spandau with its cobblestone streets and historic buildings is particularly impressive. Its nucleus, the so-called Kolk in the northern part of the old town, goes back to the 12th century and is even older than Berlin. People strolling though the narrow gates can marvel at the remains of the old city wall and get an idea of how people lived here in medieval times. The highlight of Spandau’s historic city is the Gothic brick hall church from the 14th century. And let us not forget the Gothic House. It is the oldest existing building in Spandau and it accommodates the tourist information office today. But there are not only historic sights; the old part of the town also invites shoppers: the largest pedestrian area of Berlin awaits its customers with about 300 stores. No wonder that the common Spandauers only rarely find their way to the centre of Berlin.

The citadel, to the north-east of the old town and surrounded by water and forest, is another impressive historic attraction. It dates back to the 16th century and is among the best preserved High Renaissance fortresses in Europe. Once they have climbed the narrow spiral staircase of the 30 metre Julius tower with its 145 steps, people are greeted with an unparalleled view across the district all the way to Tegel or even to the centre of Berlin.

Even Siemensstadt can be seen from here. The extensive rows of houses of the Reformsiedlung and five-story apartment buildings from the 1930s and 1940s, which have predominantly been designed to provide housing for the factory workers of the local Siemens factories, are lining the generously greened streets there. Because Spandau is the most important location of industry in Berlin and Siemens has always been one of the biggest employers. And even more companies have settled here by now. BMW, for instance, is producing brake discs and motorcycles in Spandau.

Besides bikers, even cowboys feel at home in Siemensstadt. “Old Texas Town” can be found on Paulsenstraße. The Western Town consists of 20 buildings – the Bank of Texas for instance, or Mary’s Saloon, a church, a courthouse and a jail and a Wells-Fargo coach, re-created true to original. This curiosity was built by a hobby cowboy association, which has been committed to “Old Texas Town” since 1950. Once a month, they are open for sightseeing tours.

Those who do not care for Western may possibly enjoy the many waterfront locations and forests, which make up about one quarter of the district’s footprint and are ideal local recreation areas. The quarters Kladow and Gatow on the Havel river are the rural alternative to Spandau’s small town flair. With lots of green space and water and sprawling areas with single-family homes, they mainly attract families. Those who live here live like in the countryside and enjoy pure tranquillity. And if they need a little more urbanity, the city is not far, because Spandau can be reached quickly.
