This atmosphere doesn't only survive in the narrow alleys that wind through the old buildings and historical churches, but the hills, waters and forests also invite you to take a rest.

Perhaps one of the most prominent residents of all times in Köpenick was Friedrich Wilhelm Voigt ( born on February 13, 1848 in Tilsit and died on January 3, 1922 in Luxembourg), better known as the Captain from Köpenick.
He bought parts of a captain's uniform at flea markets, collected them and afterwards he self-assuredly marched into the city hall of Köpenick where he then exercised his full "power": he didn't only had the mayor arrested, but he also made the employees pay him out the whole city treasury "in the name of the majesty". He signs the receipt with the last name of his last prison governour.
This sensational mixture of charm, wit and shamelessness helped to make him become an inmortal literary figure.
Today, in front of the city hall of Köpenick we can find a commemorative plaque and statue in his honour.
