    The Falkensee is a wonderful excursion destination: a beach promenade invites you to stroll, shore and forest trails to hike. There is a quiet and idyllic nature that you long for after a week's work in Berlin.
    Several restaurants and snack bars, mostly with sun terraces, provide for the physical well-being.

    The Flakensee invites with beautiful sandy coves for swimming. Horses also take this opportunity!

    A beautiful lake for swimming, hiking and enjoying. The only annoying thing in summer are the many leisure captains in full throttle.

    Beautiful hiking trail on the shore of the Falkensee. Very popular and therefore very busy.
    Also on the lake cavort numerous boats. When hunger strikes, it can happen on weekends and holidays that you can not get a seat in the many restaurants. So take something with you. Picnic is nice too.

    The Flakensee is an inland body of water in the Oder-Spree district east of Berlin. It is part of the federal waterway Rüdersdorfer Gewässer, which is used primarily to transport cement from the Rüdersdorf cement works to Berlin and Poland.The Flakensee has its inflow from the north from the Kalksee over the Kalkfließ and in the southeast over the Löcknitz. It has its drainage to the southwest via the Flakenfließ through Erkner to Dämeritzsee. At the southern end of the limestone river is the Woltersdorf lock with a drop height of 2.10 meters. In the north of the Flakensee lies the community of Woltersdorf, in the south the city of Erkner.In addition to shipping, the 67 hectare large and maximum 8 meters deep body of water is mainly used for water sports and as a bathing lake.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flakensee

    Really cool at sunset. The bathing area is cool too, even with camping space. Everything is kept very clean.
