CNN: Schlachtensee one of the best bathing spots in the world

Even beyond the Great Pond, the Schlachtensee in the southwest of Berlin is highly regarded: The US news channel CNN has included it in a list of the 20 best bathing places in the world, as the "Tagesspiegel" reported in its newsletter on 23 July 2020.

In its online Top 20 for the world's best places for swimming list published on Schlachtensee, CNN praises not only the good accessibility by S-Bahn, but also the winding sandy paths there and the large number of access possibilities to the "cool green water".
The deep, tree-framed lake, which is home to squirrels, is perfect for a detour into nature without long journeys. In addition to the Berlin Schlachtensee, the author recommends river swimming in the Aare in the Swiss capital of Bern and in the Akigawa river in Japan, splashing around at the southern end of Dublin Bay in Ireland, the harbour bath of Aarhus in Denmark, the Dalebrook Tidal Pool in Cape Town or Lake Bohinj in Slovenia
