Great outdoor venue for a great concert. Brilliant acoustics and magical setting in the evening light. The outbound traffic from TXL made the picture complete.

Came to Berlin and stayed in Spandau to attend the NiN gig at the Spandauer Zitadelle. Excellent venue for music. The acoustics were brilliant. The prices for beer weren't to extreme for a venue either. Upon leaving - be warned - there is quite a...More
