Sun in Berlin? Well, then a tip: the Jungfernheide lido has been open since the weekend. The small, fine outdoor pool with gastro (cake, pizza, Pils, Aperol ff.), clean sand, a long bathing jetty and a really beautiful and historically interesting facility is located in Charlottenburg, right on the border to Berlin-Siemensstadt (Spandau). Admission 8 euros per day, 10 euros on weekends.

[Many neighborhood tips, Spandau dates, links and specific district news: always in the Spandau newsletter from the Tagesspiegel – now for free here:]

“Have a vacation in Berlin” is the motto. The outdoor pool is currently open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The price per volleyball court is 5 euros per hour, a stand-up paddle costs 10 euros per hour. And if you want to rent the water ski facility exclusively, you have to pay 100 euros.

And if you like, you can take a lap around the pond to the beautiful water tower on the Jungfernheide right next to the high ropes course. There are huge trees in the forest, the beer garden is now open again, Tuesday-Thursday from 12pm-7pm and Friday-Sunday from 12pm-8pm. And the view is absolutely magical.

The large outdoor pool on Gatower Straße has also opened in Spandau, although this week the indoor season finally ends for normal swimmers. The outdoor pool in West-Staaken opens later (and closes very early again this year): You can find all the information for Spandau here in the Tagesspiegel from me.

[Speaking of swimming: This is how it will be in 2022 with the Berlin million dollar project: the new water polo arena in Spandau. Now the district and the bathing establishments are talking about plans, newspaper advertisements – and money for the outdoor pool in the daily mirror for Spandau].

By the way: French fries are becoming a luxury item in Berlin’s outdoor pools: because of the war in Ukraine, sunflower oil is in short supply. Snack bar operators have already increased the prices for fries. Here is the Tagesspiegel text.
