    Badestelle Großer Lienewitzsee

    Quaintly lined by reeds and mature trees, the Große Lienewitzsee is a wonderful destination, but the shore is difficult to reach. For bathing lures this bathing place, which is the only one of the entire lake.

    Sacrower See Badestelle Ost

    Bike Touring Highlight

    Idyllically situated in the nature reserve Sacrower See and Königswald, the lake Sacrower probably has the best water quality of the lakes in and around Berlin. There is not much room to lie here, so it's best to enjoy the cool waters.

    Waldbad Templin

    Bike Touring Highlight

    The Waldbad Templin, located a few kilometers outside of Potsdam in the direction of Caputh, is a great place to swim for all water lovers - from young to old - and easy to reach by bike or car. If you love action, you will find a beach volleyball facility and a large water slide next to surf and boat rental. On weekends is busy here, so I would recommend the ride on the bike. If you are too exhausted to go home after bathing, you can relax with the Potsdam water taxi.

    Berlin – Wandlitzsee

    Hiking Highlight

    Strictly speaking, the largest lake of the Wandlitzer Seengebiet is called Wandlitzer See. The fish-rich lake is hardly cultivated and is therefore particularly popular with nature lovers in and around Berlin. The beach band is open during the summer months and offers a kiosk, boat rental, children's playground, diving tower and various other sports facilities.
