    A lovely walk in nature for the walking, running, swimming lovers and for those who are not afraid to reach the points a little distance from the center. In the villa suburb of Berlin (Steglitz-Zehlendorf district in the southwest of the city) lies a charming lake and around a 6 km circular path. There is also a cafe and restaurant. Walking around the lake is like walking in a scenic postcard. The swans in the water and the tranquility worth the trip. You can have a swim in the summer and you will find quite a few locals stripping their clothes, hanging them on a tree and swimming in the cool water. The lake is easy reachable by the S-Bahn metro. Just get out of the station named after the lake - Schlachtensee, get down to the lake, try to remember where you got off so you will know where to get back and start walking around the lake. You can have a cup of coffe, beer or a meal at the on-site restaurant. Have a relaxing and wonderful time!

    This 400-km-long river is winding through the heart of Berlin. Many sights are located side by side and creating a unique scenery. You can do a river cruise or just walk the beautiful shore of the river.

    We went on a weekday during summer and it was great. It was busy, but we still managed to find a place for the towels and sunbathe a little bit.

    Enough Space to jog around and plenty of grass to workout, the place is slightly below road level so it gets dark early

    We visited this place together with our daughter, and after a walk among the lake, we also spent some time playing in the small spiel platz. A small restaurante serves small dishes and good beer.

    The Obersee makes for a really nice hideout from the hassle of the city. The park around it is very nicely arranged. A walk around the lake (fully accessible via footpath) takes about 20 minutes. Possibility to have a rest at the water tower with it cute café. Should be combined with a walk along nearby Orankesee and a visit to the Bauhaus-style Mies van der Rohe-Haus.
