You might think you know Berlin: From its turbulent history, to its cool, laidback vibe. The bars, the clubs, the cafe culture, and the flea markets.

But do you know about the lakes?

Join Wild Swim Berlin as we take a group of swim-mad folk from the UK to explore the lakes of Berlin. From inner-city lakes with currywurst and beer stands nearby, to more remote, tranquil stretches of water winding through beech forests. There are over 3000 beautiful lakes within Berlin and the surrounding state of Brandenburg. So if you love swimming wild and free, it’s paradise found.

This isn’t a regular swimming holiday. You don’t need to be able to swim 1, 2, or more kilometres. This is a holiday for dippers, bobbers, and “proper” swimmers alike. 

Like Berlin, it’s a laidback kind of holiday. We’ll take you to the lakes, but it’s up to you how far and how fast you swim. We’ll have full support while you enjoy the beauty of the lakes, take a walk in the forest, maybe hire a paddleboard, or drink a beer. Let us make it easy for you to relax in the company of like-minded souls, and enjoy doing what you love. 

We’ll be there to show you around Berlin too. From the famous Mauerpark fleamarket, to the Brandenburg Gate. Fancy swimming in the historic 1936 Olympics swimming pool? Eating a kebab in Kreuzberg? Or catching a boat for dinner on an island? You’ll have some free time too, to explore the city, or simply swim some more.
