The Spremberg Tower is the landmark of the city of Cottbus and is located directly in the old town. The town of Cottbus was first mentioned in documents in 1156. At that time, wooden palisades were still used for defence. The Spremberg Tower was then built in the 13th century, when it became part of the Spremberg Gate. After the gate tower survived the storm of the Hussites in 1429, the fortification of the town was raised again. In 1774, the Spremberg tower received both a new dome. These came from the Peitz fortress. In its long history, the Spremberg tower has been dismantled, rebuilt and renovated several times. The last time the Spremberg tower was renovated was in 2000, led by the Cottbus Tower Association, which had been founded two years earlier.
With its height of 28 metres, the Spremberg tower is an excellent place to get a great overview of the city of Cottbus and the surrounding area. On a few days a year, interested visitors can climb the 131 steps up to the viewing platform.
