Facts about the airport lake

The airport lake was created approximately in the period from 1953 to 1978 by the mining of gravel in this area. Extensive renaturation measures ensured that it now fits naturally into its surroundings. The lake is about 30 hectares in size and, with its maximum depth of 34.3 metres, is the deepest water body in Berlin.
