    Berlin is cool and known for many things. But not because of its swimming lakes. Wrongly, I think. The 5 km long Schlachtensee in the heart of Zehlendorf is the purest local recreation area. No matter whether for walking, jogging or biking - the Schlachtensee offers nature and holiday feeling in the city.

    There are many swimming spots and a pretty sandy path along the shore. At various lenders you can rent all sorts of watercraft, there are several restaurants.
    At the weekend, when the weather is nice, there are quite a few people on the way.

    The Schlachtensee is a lake on the Grunewaldseenkette in Berlin's Steglitz-Zehlendorf district. The lake is surrounded by a 6 km long riverside path. It is ideal for walkers, hikers, runners and cyclists. There are several swimming spots on the lake. In the summer months, any vacancy is used for swimming. On the east side of the lake there is a boat rental. There are the local Old fisherman's hut and fisherman's hut on Schlachtensee, as well as a snack bar with seating.
    The Schlachtensee can be easily reached via the S-Bahn station Schlachtensee (S1) and via the underground station Krumme Lanke (U3).

    Hell was going on here today as if there was no tomorrow: crowded even in the cordoned off, protected bank area. Conclusion: if nobody can travel anymore, everyone will travel here.

    It won't get boring here. There was shouting on the lake today and seven and a half minutes later the police were there, followed by two ambulances. An unusually fast and quite dusty operation on the northern bank and of course we all immediately formed an emergency alley and brought ourselves to safety.

    The Schlachtensee is a bathing lake with boat rentals, fishing paradise and especially popular with joggers and walkers, because around it leads a beautiful seven-kilometer, surrounded by forest riverside path.

    The Schlachtensee is a lake in the southwest of Berlin in the Steglitz-Zehlendorf district on the edge of the Grunewald. The eastern part of the lake belongs to the district of Zehlendorf, the western part to the district of Nikolassee.The tubular Schlachtensee is almost the southernmost lake in the Grunewald chain of lakes, which geologically belongs to the Teltow plateau and which formed as a glacial channel around 15,000 years ago in the Brandenburg stage of the Vistula Ice Age.With an area of around 421,000 m² and a maximum depth of around 8.5 meters, it is one of the larger lakes in the Berlin urban area; the circumference is 5.5 kilometers. The lakeshore is used intensively for walks and, with its continuous riverside path, is one of the most popular jogging routes in Berlin. With its good water quality and wooded location, the Schlachtensee is also a popular bathing area.Since 1981 around three million m³ of water from the Großer Wannsee have been almost completely freed of phosphate in the Beelitzhof surface water treatment plant and then discharged with almost drinking water quality at the southwest end of the Schlachtensee. The quality of the water in the lake has improved significantly since then. However, increasing use, bank destruction and other phosphate inputs (including dog excrement, soil erosion, feeding water birds, stirring up sediment) threaten the quality of the water.There is a boat rental on the east side of the lake. Anglers will find 18 species of fish in the Schlachtensee and the neighboring Krummen Lanke. The lake and the residential area are well connected to local public transport via the Schlachtensee S-Bahn station.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schlachtensee

    Nice green round on the outskirts of Berlin. A detour to the fisherman's hut to take a break is always worthwhile.
    Behind the fisherman's hut, just follow a hiking path up to the right ... and enjoy a more relaxed lap around the lake through the forest.
