The last weeks have been crazy hot in Berlin. It doesn’t look like it’s going to be colder any time soon. Therefore I have compiled an easy to use first aid jump into water list. All of these lakes are easily reachable by boat and public transport.
1) the classic – Wannsee
Easy to reach by S-Bahn (the actual stop is called Wannsse) this lake has a long tradition to be Berlins favourite beach. You can’t go wrong here.
2) the easyjet – Flughafensee
Flughafen translates to airport and this lake is indeed next to TXL. However, you can’t hear the planes at all. Instead you are in a beautiful forest. U stop Otisstrasse, then 10 minutes walk.
3) the Caribbean – Plötzensee
Beautiful sandy beaches with beach volleyball fields. You can also rent a paddleboat here. There is also a nudist area if you feel kinky. Bus 106 or tram M13
go there – have fun
