    Idyllic lake in Barnim, which is well worth circling. On one side there is Strausberg Stadt (it is also worth a stroll) and on the other side forest. In addition to a swimming pool (on the city side), there are also free swimming spots on the lake. Those who cannot complete a complete circuit can also use the ferry, which is located approximately in the middle of the lake.

    From Berlin you can reach the Straussee with the S-Bahn line 5 towards Strausberg Nord to the Strausberg Stadt station.

    A very beautiful roundabout around the lake with a series of information boards about the history of the city.

    Beautifully situated lake in Barnim, the circumnavigation is worthwhile. Strausberg Stadt is on one side and the forest on the other.
