Zitadelle - Berlin

One of the best-preserved Renaissance fortresses in Europe, the Zitadelle -Citadel- was built to protect the town of Spandau -currently part of Berlin- in the island located where the rivers Havel and Spree meet.

The Juliusturm was the original building on that spot, and the eldest in Europe by 1200. The Citadel was constructed (1559-94) as a square building with four bastions, symmetrically arranged and connected by curtain walls, impeding enemies to hide. Until the end of WWII, the Zitadelle was used as a bastion, state treasury and dungeon.

Opened to the public in 1989, the Citadel is currently used for cultural activities. Theater performances take place often, and concerts like the “Zitadelle Music Festival” are held every summer. Visitors can go around the fortress and see exhibitions, or make an appointment to view Jewish Gravestones in the Queen’s bastion.
