If anything is missing in Berlin, it's the sea. The river that runs through the city, the Spree, can only slightly make up for this lack. But kids love splashing around in the water. The wave pool in the Bad am Spreewaldplatz swimming pool gives youngsters an idea of the force of nature before they go on a trip to the coast by the sea or even the ocean.
Ride the waves and have a sauna
On the busy Wiener Straße in Kreuzberg, you'll find numerous cafés, bars, clubs, and restaurants next to each other. But here you can also have a glorious time leaping the waves, whizzing down the slide, or even sweating in one of the two dry saunas. And if you feel like a rest, there are deck chairs and wicker beach chairs as well. One hour's swimming costs from €3 for children, while a family ticket give you two hours of swimming for just €10.
