Swimming season has begun
At the beginning of the bathing season, the water in all of Berlin's bathing lakes is of good quality.
This was announced by the Landesamt für Gesundheit und Soziales (Lageso) on 14 May 2019. The waters at the 39 official bathing sites are suitable for swimming. The swim season in Berlin starts this Wednesday and lasts until 15 September. During this time, the water quality of the waters will be checked every 14 days. The early warning system for the Kleine Badewiese and Grunewaldturm bathing areas with daily predictions of water quality will also exist this year. It was introduced in 2018 because the tributaries from the Havel and Spree pose a particular risk of pollution.
