Tangermünde is one of those northern German cities that have preserved their medieval-looking cityscape up to the present day. Here the visitor will find history to touch. On a plateau above the unmistakable floodplain landscape at the mouth of the river Tangier into the Elbe, lies the medieval castle and the city, which was established about 1000 years ago in its protection.

Tangermünde Castle, which emerged from a castle built in the 10th century and is still strongly reminiscent of one, is located on an elevation, separated from the actual city by a ditch. In the 10th and 11th centuries it was an imperial castle and secured the Elbe border of the Holy Roman Empire. From 1373 it was even the second most important residence of Emperor Charles IV, after Prague, who had the complex expanded like a castle.
The castle can be reached from the city through a medieval gate. The tower securing the gate was built around 1480. It is known as the prison tower because it was used as a prison in the 19th century. The lock clearance is located directly in front of the gate. Although this street is outside the old city walls, Tangermünde's oldest surviving residential building is located here. It survived the great fire in the late Middle Ages and is now home to the castle museum.

The keep was built during the extensive renovation of the castle complex in the 14th century. The red brick tower rises on a base area of 9.80 mx 6.70 m over six floors to a height of approx. 50 m. In the 16th to 18th centuries it was used as a granary for the capital of Berlin's cathedral, and this is how the name "Kapitelturm", which is still in use today, came about. It has been used as a lookout tower since May 2003.
