Beautiful builging
Jun 2016 • Couples
Built in 1905, it has some Jugendstil character. At the entrance there is a statue of the famous Köpenick captain, and there is a small exhibition about the events of the Captain.

Handsoe building, amusing history
Aug 2015 • Couples
Alighting from the bus, we first toured the Köpenick Rathaus, the city hall. Outside, next to the entrance, a bronze statue of the Captain from Köpenick, one of history’s most amusing scoundrels, greeted us. Inside, we saw the safe and the strongbox, which Wilhelm Vogt, an unemployed cobbler, had made off with in 1906 while “arresting” the mayor and the town treasurer, alleging embezzlement. He’d pulled off the scam by conning a captain’s uniform he’d pieced together using bits he’d bought in second-hand stores and counting on his countrymen’s respect for military authority and its trappings. Vogt’s escapade inspired two movies and now a musical, “Der Hauptmann von Köpenick,” launched earlier this summer in the theater in the Rathaus. There is also a mock changing of the guard, complete with Turn-of-the-Century uniforms and spiked helmets, every day at 11:00.
