Nieder Neuendorfer See


Nieder Neuendorfer See on the border with Reinickendorf is part of the chain of lakes in the Middle Havel area and also forms the state border between Brandenburg and Berlin. It is a popular destination for cyclists, water sports enthusiasts and bathers who want to swim in the lake or simply relax on the shore.

For cyclists who want to circumnavigate the lake, the 20-km route leads along less frequented traffic roads and pure bicycle paths, past restaurants, inviting beer gardens and many bathing spots, especially on the Berlin side. The Sandhauser bridge offers a view of neighboring Heiligensee. For a rest, visitors can choose between the Heiligensee lakeside resort or the Sandhausen bathing area on Nieder Neuendorfer See. Excursion boats offer tours of the entire Havelsee area. You can also explore the lake on your own by boat, canoe or surfboard.

Swimming in the Nieder Neuendorfer See

There are three bathing spots on the shore on the Berlin side and two on the Brandenburg side, inviting visitors to take a dip in the cool water. However, swimmers are not allowed to cross the lake because it is not just a bathing lake but also a busy shipping lane.

Facts about the Nieder Neuendorfer See

From the confluence of the Teufelsseekanal to the northern end, the Nieder Neuendorfer See is about six kilometers long. In the northern part of the water is an artificial breakwater, a result of the German division. The former border watchtower Nieder Neuendorf on the western shore is now a museum and provides interested visitors with vivid information on the history of the Berlin Wall.
