It’s a bit of a trek to get to Strandbad Wannsee but if you make it there, you’re rewarded with a proper beach, in a beautiful lakeside location, surrounded by pine forest. After a long period of decay, the installations have just undergone major refurbishments and the place is seeing a renaissance of sorts. The resort used to be Berlin’s prime destination for a summer getaway and dates back to the beginning of the 20th century – it was also the only accessible lake in the former West Berlin, adding to its historical clout. The gay crowd tends to flock around the nudist area on the northern part of the beach and around the roof terrace.
