Best Beaches Near Berlin

Berlin, the capital of Germany, is known for its vibrant culture, rich history, and diverse architecture. However, being inland, Berlin does not have any natural sea beaches. But there are a few city beaches and lakes where locals go to swim and sunbathe:

  1. Strandbar Mitte: This beach bar situated along the River Spree provides a sandy retreat in the heart of the city. You won't be able to swim here, but you can enjoy a beach-like atmosphere with cocktails, deck chairs, and even a dance floor.

  2. Badeschiff: This is a floating swimming pool on the River Spree, located in the trendy area of Kreuzberg. Next to the pool, there's a sandy beach area with hammocks and a bar.

  3. Wannsee Beach: Located on the eastern shore of the Wannsee lake, this is one of the largest inland lidos in Europe, boasting a sandy beach and a designated swimming area.

  4. Müggelsee: This is the largest of Berlin's lakes and it has several beaches where you can swim and sunbathe.

  5. Weißensee: This is a smaller lake in the city with a family-friendly lido and beach cafe.

If you're willing to venture a bit farther from Berlin, there are several seaside resorts along the Baltic Sea coast:

  1. Warnemünde: About a 3-hour train ride from Berlin, this seaside resort boasts a wide sandy beach, a picturesque old town, and a marina.

  2. Usedom Island: Known for its long sandy beaches and historic architecture, Usedom is about a 3-hour train ride from Berlin.

Remember, as always, to apply plenty of sunscreen, stay hydrated, and follow local safety guidelines. Enjoy your beach experience in and around Berlin!
