Experience our Old Town
The Old Town, which is partly located on a Havel Island and is more than 700 years old and is the most popular destination for our guests. Together with our city guides, visitors may find out more about the stories that are hidden behind the neat facades of the old town houses.
The Lindowsche Haus (Lindow House), for example. It is named after the owner family and has the typical features of a fruit growing farm from the 19th century. Or the Scharfrichterhaus (Executioner's House), which dates to the hangman tradition from 1640. It is considered the oldest house on the mainland. Then there is the old brewery, reminiscent of the local brewery stock corporation. It has the beautiful address ‘Unter den Linden 1’ (Under the Linden Trees 1).
The Lendelhaus (Lendel House), which was built on the medieval knight's seat as a city palace, is considered the most important secular architectural monument on the island. The Bockwindmühle (Post Windmill) shapes the silhouette of the island together with the two churches – Holy Spirit and Maria Meeresstern.
Our historically dressed city guides have an anecdote ready for every building and every corner of the Old Town. This way, they bring the past and the Werder savoir vivre to life.
The city can be easily reached by public transport: The RE1 takes about 35 minutes from Berlin Central Station via Potsdam to the Werder City Station. The Powerbus connects Werder with the state capital and the region, while the PlusBus takes you to the middle centre partner Beelitz.
