Spandau Citadel is known to be one of the oldest preserved sites in Europe. It is a renaissance military structure which was built in the year 1200. The fortress basically consists of four buildings named after the famous Brandenburg, King, Queen and Prince. Even though it is very prominent on the historical map of Berlin, it is a lot more than just being a historical attraction. A lot of upcoming and established artists flock to this attraction every year for the Citadel music festival which is a complete delight. Rest of the days, bird lovers go to discover fruit birds and undertake bat tours to see the hidden world of these birds inside the fortress.

I find that this Citadel is really worth to visit. For a small price you can visit multiple mini-museums, climb up to the tower and enjoy the cool view. Recommended for all fans of the history.
We saw Jack Johnson playing here and it was such a fantastic atmosphere. Kind of private with thousands of people. Just the right mixture for a concert. The food was not bad as well. We took a stroll around the citadel earlier and it is very rustic and beautiful. And most likely the highest point of Berlin (not man made).
Fortress is a good place for walks, nice city view, museums are not so attractive. If u wanna know the long history of the citadel, better read in advance about it and then explore it.
Nice fortress to visit... during ww2 russians had to negotiate surrender of fortress....fortress was that though! There is a restaurant inside fortress with middle ages feeling and look. Open table food is great as well as red beer. Overal amazing experience worth visiting!!! Definitely one of the hidden gems of Berlin :)
We enjoyed the giant fireworks on new year's eve here. Spectacular with a medieval atmosphere!
