"Pack your swimsuit… let's be on our way, there's nothing like a day at Wannsee"

The sentiment encapsulated in the hit song composed by Conny Froboess in the 1950s is as fitting today as it ever was and lends itself perfectly as a slogan for the newly signposted Wannsee Route.
The Wannsee Route - one of the longest and most interesting cycle routes in Berlin - connects the former East to the former West Berlin and the city's historic centre with districts built during the German Empire, suburbs of luxurious villas and recreational areas on the south-western outskirts of town.
The route starts at Schlossplatz in the city centre and finishes at the Glienicker Brücke in an idyllic Prussian landscape of parks and palaces. At this point - on the Havel crossing between Berlin and Potsdam - the Berlin cycle route meets Brandenburg's bicycle network.
Experience a piece of city history as you travel through south-west Berlin or relax in the recreational areas on the outskirts of town or in the landscaped beauty of the Lower Havel. Alternatively, combine cycling with train travel on your trip to the countryside. Trains leave regularly from well-signposted stations in the city and the suburbs, providing you with a quick and easy way to get back to town after an enjoyable and exhilarating bike ride.
