Orankesee is located in the middle of a villa district in Lichtenberg. The associated lido offers various leisure activities.

In the lido Orankesee, visitors have numerous opportunities for swimming and relaxing. The operators filled the 300-metre long sandy beach with sand from the Baltic Sea coast. Beach chairs and sunbathing areas as well as a children's playground complete the offer. Outside the leisure pool, a 1.3-kilometre-long path along the shore invites you to take a walk or jog.

Swimming in the Orankesee

Swimming is only allowed in the Orankesee lido, which features a non-swimmer area and a 52-meter long water slide. Swimming is not permitted outside the lido.
