Once it was the largest fort in and around Berlin. Today it is an attraction with a lot of museums, specifically the old Berlin monuments are very interesting. There are concerts and festivals also.

Spent a lovely day exploring the very small town of Spandau ( now part of Berlin) and its Zitadel) Only 20mins by U-bahn from city centre and worth a visit.
