The many lakes in Berlin are an El Dorado for water sports enthusiasts and those seeking recreation. 6.6 percent of the city's area is water. Those who have not visited any of the large lakes do not understand the special quality of Berlin.
The Strandbad Wannsee is the largest inland seaside resort in Europe. It was built in 1929/30 and has enjoyed great popularity ever since. In summer temperatures, it can accommodate thousands of bathers.
