Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin
189,977 people cannot be wrong. And if all of them chose to go swimming in Prinzenbad in 2012, then the most popular open-air swimming pool in Berlin must be worth visiting this year, too.
And here is your chance springing at you from the high tower: today at 7am the first brave and low-temperature resistant (below 10° is less than friendly) swimmers dipped their toes and then the rest in still fresh waters of the pools in Gitschiner Strasse corner Prinzenstrasse.
New season means new prices, though: a single ticket will cost you 4.50 where it used to be worth 4.00 a year ago (reduced 2.80 instead of 2.50), a family ticket means spending 8 Euros and a season ticket will set you back 248 Euros (it was 220 Euros before). More details and more offers (f.ex. the new 10+1 ticket replacing the so called “Zehner-Karte”) can be found on the Prinzenbad-Blog here.
And as for the baths themselves, they were of course the topic of one of the early posts on this blog and available here. I´m a believer, you see. A dry one.
