One special highlight – and not only for children – is the wildlife enclosure, where you can watch wild animals at close range. Since the 1970s, large parts of the area have been designated as a nature reserve and bird sanctuary.

Along the Havel

Spandau’s proximity to the water is a true gift at any time of year. The view over the water has a unique calming effect. The river Havel runs all the way through the borough from north to south with excellent views and leisure options all along it.

A walk from the harbour at Kladow to Gutspark Neukladow is especially pleasant, but there’s also the walk along Lindenufer in the old town of Spandau to where the Havel merges with the Spree.

Habichtswald and Rieselfelder Karolinenhöhe

When you’re in the middle of the beautiful countryside of the Rieselfelder you soon forget that you’re still in the capital city. In the 19th century, one of Berlin’s twenty sewage farms for biological wastewater treatment was established here.

Today you can walk, ride or cycle through the fields of the protected landscape area on numerous paths and trails.

The Hahneberg is the highest point in the borough and is an interesting and attractive combination of a nature reserve with wildlife sanctuary, Fort Hahneberg (only open from April to October) and a toboggan run in winter.
