The 175,000 square meter Grunewaldsee is located on the edge of the Grunewald in the southwest of Berlin. It's part of Berlin's largest contiguous dog walking area, so you should like dogs when walking along its shores, as there are a lot of Berliners with dogs here, especially on sunny weekends.
The Grunewald hunting lodge (built in 1542) and the Paulsborn inn (built around 1800 as a farmstead, later also used as a forester's house) are located on the Grunewaldsee.

The Grunewaldsee is located in the west of the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district of Berlin, on the edge of the Grunewald forest. The lake with an area of about 175,000 m² belongs to the glacial channel of the Grunewald chain of lakes. To the north are the Hundekehlefenn nature reserve and the Hundekehlesee lake, to the south-west in the chain of lakes are the two nature reserves Langes Luch and Riemeisterfenn and then the Krumme Lanke.
At the lake is the Grunewald hunting lodge from 1542, the oldest castle in the city and the only evidence of Berlin's early Renaissance. A part of the shore area is designated as a nature reserve and at the same time the Grunewaldsee is the most popular area for dogs to run around in Berlin - a constant conflict of interest and apple of discord in the city. While the lake itself is entirely in the Grunewald district of the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district, part of the south-eastern shore, the hunting lodge and the historic hunting restaurant and hotel Paulsborn belong to the Dahlem district of the Steglitz-Zehlendorf district.
