As temperatures are rising, we feel more outdoorsy by the day. An urge to go for a stroll and taking picnics in Berlin’s beautiful parks, take long breezy bike tours, or nip on fancy cocktails on Berlin’s best rooftop bars. AND going to the beach. Wait, WHAT? Yes, folks, Berlin has some pretty beaches. And here are some of our favourite Berlin beaches for this summer season. So grab those fancy swimmers and follow along.
Arena Berlin reminds you of Sydney’s famous Iceberg pool but set in Berlin’s raw and creative surroundings. A large neon lid pool floats in the River Spree with a panoramic view of the Berlin skyline. Volleyball, hammocks, BBQs, massages, SUP yoga classes, beach parties and cocktails make this place a true urban oasis.
Insel der Jugend (Isle of Youth)
No, it’s not a myth. Close to Treptower Park, you’ll find the Berlin beaches of Isle of Youth calling you. It’s the perfect city escape after a Berlin party night. So bring a picnic, enjoy a lattée with lakeside view, rent a boat and end your day with a concert or an open air movie night.
Strandbad Weißer See
The White Lake (Weißer See) is like taking a plunge in the Caribbean. There’s palm trees, a big fountain in the middle, white sand and an overall chilled vibe. So kids can have fun building sand castles and adults can enjoy a nice relaxing day by the ‘See’. Enjoy a drink from the bamboo bar, get an aromatic massage. Seriously, are you there yet? It’s the perfect idyll.
A stone’s throw from shopping extravaganza Kurfurstendamm, you find this green hideaway park with moon shaped lake and yet another on of pretty Berlin beaches. And when temperatures rise, the picturesque Stella Boat House opens for refreshments and idyllic sceneries.
Another tropical island setting at the banks of the River Spree! This harbour holds sun beds, palm trees, beach bars and a white sandy beach. So dance on your bare feet to electro tunes and enjoy a BBQ with friends.
