The best refreshments in summer

As soon as the warmer weather creeps in, Berliners and visitors flock to the city's many beach baths and outdoor pools. Badeschiff offers a unique experience in that the pool is submerged in the River Spree, and is attached to a cool beach bar. Families will love Sommerbad Neukölln outdoor pool with its diving boards and 83m slide, while similar options include Sommerbad Humbolthain in the Wedding district and Sommerbad Kreuzberg. For a day at the beach, on the fringes of the city, head to Strandbad Wannsee, featuring a sandy beach and safe swimming areas. Other city lakes with popular beaches include Krumme Lanke and Plötzensee, both reachable by U-Bahn.
