Wannsee, Berlin

(4.5/5 based on 95 reviews on the web)
The Großer Wannsee is a bight of the Havel river near the locality of Wannsee and Nikolassee, a south-western suburb of the German capital Berlin not far from Potsdam. Between the river itself and the Wannsee lies the Breite, or Grosse Breite . To the north lies the island of Schwanenwerder and, opposite from the Greater Wannsee on the other side of the Havel, is the locality of Kladow .OverviewThe Wannsee lake is well known as the number-one bathing and recreation spot for western Berlin, especially from a 1951 Schlager hit by teen idol Cornelia Froboess. The Strandbad Wannsee, an open-air lido with one of the longest inland beaches in Europe and a popular nudist area, was built in 1920–30 after a concept by architect Richard Ermisch. Situated on the eastern shore of the lake it is officially part of the Nikolassee locality.Photogallery

  • The Wannsee is a stunner. Therefore whatever many are there and the parking lots are full. The tours of the seven lakes or the other are of course great. Most cheapest it goes however BVG ferry to Kladow, which runs once an hour and then put it back. From the boat, you have great views of this beautiful Lake, if man - no longer resembles to some beautiful days - the water in front of loud sailing boats
