More tips:


Ps: Obviously, there are much more bathing areas in Berlin. We also decided to leave out some open air swimming pools, which didn’t fully comply with our idea of a Berlin map focusing on U-and S-Bahn lines. But don’t worry; just take a look at the commentary section for more inspiration! Because no matter where you end up on a hot summer day in Berlin – we wish you a wonderful day at the waterfront!
