Bathing lakes are just one of the many incredible features of Berlin, but if you want to live like the locals, you’ve got to visit one during your stay. The state of Brandenburg, which surrounds the city, is home to thousands of lakes. So, you really will be spoilt for choice!
These picturesque spots are the perfect place to go to get away from the busy centre on a crisp winter morning. One of the best for visitors to enjoy has to be Schlachtensee, where you can hire a rowboat, stroll around the boardwalk, or stop to watch the fishermen and enjoy the calm atmosphere.
During summer, bring your swimming costume and enjoy a dip in the placid waters; an idyllic way to cool down and enjoy the sunshine. For an all-over tan and a spot of skinny dipping, Teufelssee is ideal. Surrounded by peaceful woodlands and with plenty of lush grass to lay on, this makes a fantastic destination for a warm day.
