Separated from the Altstadt by the busy Strasse am Juliusturm, the Kolk quarter was the site of Spandau’s first settlement and exudes medieval village flair with its romantic narrow lanes, crooked, half-timbered houses and 78m-long section of town wall. Its key sight is the church of St Marien am Behnitz, which is now privately owned and used as a concert venue.
