The City, Not the State
Brandenburg an der Havel
With more than 70,000 inhabitants, Brandenburg an der Havel is the most urban city in the so-called second circle around the capital Berlin. It was not artificially created on a drawing board but has grown naturally over 1,000 years. Infrastructure, education, culture, the health care system, clubs, and societies have traditionally developed – inspired by the river flowing through the city and the lake scenery surrounding it.
