Riverside promenade and ferry station
Spandau’s southernmost village, Kladow, is down the road from Gatow. The village centre extends along the river Havel and a regular public ferry sails to and from Wannsee.
Originally a fishing village, it celebrated its 750th anniversary in 2017. Among the oldest existing buildings are the 14th-century village church and Neukladow manor house, which was completed in 1800. But the area is also characterised by a number of new housing estates.
From the centre of the village you can take a stroll down to the Havel or to the garden at Dr. Max Fraenkel’s country house, or you can enjoy a cup of coffee and a slice of cake at Neukladow manor house.
Although the name often causes confusion, Gatow airfield and the Military History Museum are now part of Kladow. Incidentally, the poet Mascha Kaléko also recalls the village in her poem “Souvenir à Kladow”.
