We all know that Berlin is not the most famous city for beach holidays, but did you know that in our city there’s a lot of wonderful lakes where you can swim and enjoy the sun during the hot days? (Yes, there’s hot days in Berlin too!! )
Some of them are also inside the city, others a bit more outside, but it’s also a good occasion to stay in the nature and have a break from the chaotic city-life.
Here ‘s some of the nicest:
You can reach this beautiful lake directly with the S-Bahn train (S1 – stop “Schlachtensee”). Just in front of the station you will see it. It’s a pretty big lake, has some small beaches, really clear water. For the bravest ones, you can jump from the trees hanging on the ropes 😉 . For the lazy ones, you can rent a boat and float in the middle of the lake.
This lake, situated outside of the city, is really huge. Water is also clear, and the “Strand” (sand beach) is huuuge ! Seems like to be on the sea! To get there take the S3 train till “Rahnsdorf” stop. From there it’s a 20 mins nice walk trough the wood and then you’re there!
This lake is in the city, located in the north east part of Prenzlauer Berg (district where’s also Mauerpark, famous for the flea market on sunday). Surrounded by a nice park, you can swim till the fountain placed in the middle. A good option to don’t go too far from the center of Berlin.
These are only three of the big amount of lakes you can visit here, for more infos, just ask at the reception!!
