The Spree-Island is an area in the centre of Berlin located between two arms of the River Spree and is the area upon which Berlin was first founded. Little remains of the original Berlin, and the island is now mainly occupied by large public buildings.

Due to its size (particularly when compared to the width of the Spree), and the large number of bridges, its character as an island is greatly diminished.
