Lake-Hop­ping in Bran­den­burg

Where Berlin - - SIGHTSEEING -

Some­times you just need a break from hec­tic city life to recharge in the seren­ity of na­ture. Right out­side of Ber­lin, in the state of Bran­den­burg, nu­mer­ous lakes sit just wait­ing to be ex­plored. Pots­dam's Grieb­nitzsee, which lies where the bor­der be­tween East Ger­many and West Ber­lin once ran, is easily ac­ces­si­ble by S-Bahn (S Grieb­nitzsee), while Heiliger See, sur­rounded by beau­ti­ful palaces and Ho­hen­zollern res­i­dences, is a lit­tle more com­pli­cated to reach, as it re­quires a hop on Tram 93 to Lud­wich-RichterS­traße from the Pots­dam S-Bahn sta­tion. If you’re up for a longer drive to the north of Bran­den­burg, you’ll be re­warded with Großer Stech­lin­see, one of the deep­est and clear­est lakes in the state, with wa­ter clean enough for drink­ing.
