“Only if You have Loads of Time in Berlin”
Review of Altstadt Spandau

Altstadt Spandau
Ranked #174 of 1,043 things to do in Berlin
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 July 2017

This little square and village is nice. But it's surrounded by suburban sprawl. It's not terribly enthralling or rich in sights. I would take a pass, but it's nice for what it is.

In a normal Altstadt there are some really nice old buildings, memorials, etc. Here you have a gothic house, a church and some Fachwerhaus. That is all.

If it's your third or fourth visit to Berlin- we enjoyed a day trip on the UBahn to see Spandau. Mentioned in our twenty year old guide book we laughed about it afterwards but it had lovely little shops and cafes. Enjoyed a typical hot chocolate, bought some presents, took some photos and enjoyed watching all the locals going about their daily tasks. I was intrigued that there was a seemingly successful local economy of small businesses, something very challenging in small town Ireland.

Really nice christmas market, especially the historical part directly in front of the church has a wonderful atmosphere

Went especially as we had read up before visiting that this was a great Christmas market. Extensive yes and not too busy. Also had a 'viking' bit which was very authentic and the nativity scene with live animals was lovely (although not too sure about the animal welfare aspect so please don't shoot me down for that comment !). I'm not into 'Rock and Roll' on a daily basis but this was advertised as such so to see a small stage with a band on it as opposed to an 'experience' was a let down. Very authentic stalls around but a mobile phone unlocking stall and some random bloke selling cheap fake leather goods certainly didn't add to the festive ambience !! Had high hopes for this but left disappointed due to what we were promised in the promotional literature. Nice pint on an offstreet bar though although we were stared at throughout as we were the only non-German people in the place !

Thank Tarndy
