Sum­mer Lovin’

LUXE City Guides - Berlin - - Out Of Towners -

Wannsee Beach. Pack a pic­nic (see V. Use­ful) and zip 15km south­west to Ber­lin­ers’ fave spot of wicker loungers, old-school bath­houses and mu­rals. When the sun’s out, it may seem like the whole of Europe has come too, but the lakes, lined with turn-of-the-cen­tury and modernist vil­las owned by star­lets and their sugar dads, pro­vide respite from the edgy con­crete unlove­li­ness in town. By train: rent a bike in town (see V. Use­ful), take it with you to S: Niko­lassee, and sim­ply fol­low the signs to ‘Strand­bad Wannsee’. By car: rent a car (see V. Use­ful), take the A115 au­to­bahn to­wards Pots­dam, exit at Niko­lassee (#3), make a right then left onto Kron­prinzessi­nen­weg. Past the stately man­sions, turn right at Königstr., go over the bridge, and stop at any point on this main drag. The shore is through the woods to the right / €4 euro en­try
