KREUZBERGED: BERLIN COMPANION

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

PACK DIE BADEHOSE EIN

Summer has just returned to Berlin and it is time to pack your swimming trunks, your bathing suit or whatever garments it is that you prefer when taking a dip and go to the nearest lido.

When the day turns into a scorcher, then – not counting swimming pools and open baths – those lucky devils, Berliners, can choose between almost 80 lakes (the official count is 77 but the exact number is difficult to come at considering that some of them come in groups or clusters).

Also, it is not easy to choose the lake that would be the easiest to reach from where you live in the city. But despair not! The popular local, “Berliner Morgenpost”, have published a convenient lake navigation system on their web page.

All you have to do to be directed to the nearest lido is to type in your address and – lo! and behold – there is your choice of where to take a swim without having to spend excruciatingly long hours on the train. In our case – and to our great surprise – the final top result turned out to be Halensee.

Have fun searching for your nearest bathing spot and thank you “Berliner Morgenpost”!
