The Gotisches Haus (Gothic House) is one of the most important secular medieval monuments in Spandau and even in the entire Berlin area. The Late Gothic building was erected in the second half of the 15th century. The well-preserved ribbed vaulted ceiling on the ground floor dates back to around 1500. The restoration of the Gotisches Haus began in 1987 and was completed in 1993.
A branch of the Stadtgeschichtliches Museum Spandau (City Historical Museum of Spandau) is housed on the upper floor. A permanent exhibition there is devoted to the theme of "Bauen und Wohnen in der Spandauer Altstadt" ("Building and Living in Spandau's Old Town"). A tour of the thirteen rooms allows visitors to experience urban life over the course of the past several centuries. On the ground floor, there is a tourist information booth as well as rooms for changing art and history exhibitions.
