Princes and kings, great inventors and renowned architects as well as people who did not only stand up for their own freedom play important roles in the eventful history of Treptow-Köpenick. Wilhelm Voigt, who caused a sensation in 1906 as “Hauptmann von Köpenick”, still makes us smile heute.
A breath of more than 800 years of history wafts around you during a walk across the Köpenick old town island. Surrounded by the Dahme and Spree rivers, you will experience attractive promenades, ancient trees in the palace park as well as valuable exhibits from the Slavic period, porcelain and silver buffet of the Berlin City Palace and a baroque palace church.
Scenic beauty as far as the eye can see: parks, forests, lakes. You would hardly believe you are in Berlin if it weren’t for the warm, direct Berlin mentality and the local transport system.
This is the most beautiful view in the city: the Müggelturm, almost 30 metres high, is a traditional excursion destination on the over 80-metre-high “Kleiner Müggelberg”. There is also a lot to discover in Berlin treptow-Köpenick on solid ground or on one of the waters: the old town island, Treptower Park, Schöneweide with the Wuhlheide and Friedrichhagen on Müggelsee. Tradition and modernity, culture and architecture are combined here with Berlin’s cosmopolitan lifestyle.
