Beaches Things to do

Gay Beach Berlin

Bigger and better than before, 12,000 square meters of palm trees, fine sand, loungers and straw umbrellas now belong to the boys on Mondays.

Freibad Plötzensee

A beautiful lido so centrally located that it’ll be the first stop for anybody in want of a lakeside swim.

Strandbar Mitte

The original urban beach in Berlin, great for chilling out after sightseeing on the Museum Island.


The kind of place that you could imagine foreign correspondents covering German politics going to.

Strandbad Wannsee

The beautiful lakeside location used to be Berlin’s prime destination for a summer getaway and is seeing a renaissance of sorts.


By far the largest of Berlin’s urban beaches and big enough to offer different ‘vibes’ across each of the bars and concession stands.

Traumstrand Berlin

Not the biggest of Berlin’s urban beaches but still pretty immense given its location smack in the middle of town.

Beach at the Box

Right on the edge of the Tiergarten’s lush lawns, but there’s no arguing with the attractiveness of this 100 meter long stretch of sandy chill-out.
