Brandenburg an der Havel is not really a village or a town, but a full city with more then 70 thousands people living there. Today it is a small town compared to nearby Berlin, but it was the original nucleus of the former realms of Brandenburg and Prussia.
In the late 19th century Brandenburg an der Havel became a very important industrial center in the German Empire. Steel industries settled there, and several world famous bicycle brands such as Brennabor, Corona and Excelsior were manufactured in the city.
The city center has a pedestrian area crossed just by trams and a nice river walk.
