Bike Touring Highlight
The Hubertussee is the easternmost spur of the small Grunewaldseenkette. He was artificially created during the expansion of the villa colony Grunewald. Just like the other lakes of the small Grunewaldseenkette - Dianasee, Herthasee and Koenigssee - the Hubertussee is surrounded by villa properties. He is named after the Catholic saint and patron saint of hunting. On its green shore many pastures grow and in the lake is a small, overgrown island. At 730 meters, the shore trail Grunewald leads along the southern shore of Hubertussee.
Baden in Hubertussee
Bathing in Hubertussee is not recommended due to the water quality. The lake is fed from the street drainage of the surrounding residential area. From the shore, however, offers a beautiful view of the lake and benches invite you to linger.
Worth knowing about the Hubertussee
The Hubertussee was dug in 1889 in the course of a year. The banks were heaped up with the resulting soil. Villas were built on the newly formed hillside crowns, which were particularly sought after because of the view of the lake. Before the construction of the villa colony, in the area of Lake Hubertus there was a marshy area called the Torffenn. On the elongated shape of the lake, the course of this area is still recognizable today.Source: berlin.de/tourismus/seen/4862880-4299185-hubertussee.html
