I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Berlin is not only a city full of water, but it’s surrounded by it too.

In the last few weeks, I took you by the hand and introduced you to Spreewald and Lübbenau!

But you didn’t think I’d stop there now did you?

As if!

Let me introduce you to Schwielowsee!

Schwielowsee is a beautiful lake in Brandenburg.

I know I say that all lakes are beautiful, but it really is.

I’m obsessed with water, so I should know!

Lake Schwielowsee is roughly 5.4 km / 3.4 miles long, has a maximum width of 2.0 km / 1.2 miles and covers a surface area that is 7.86 sq km / 3.03 sq miles.

It’s one of the largest lakes in Brandenburg and is very popular with water sport enthusiasts, sailors and surfers, so you can bring your sailing boat, canoe or yacht with you.

Why not?

We live in North Berlin, so Schwielowsee is just a hop and a breeze away!

Having said that, if you’re a visitor to Berlin, you don’t need to leave, as it’s the greenest city in Germany!

But if you must, it’s only about 1.5 hours from Berlin, and is famous not only because of the historical villages of Caputh, Ferch and Geltow, but because the summer house of Albert Einstein is located there too!

Yes.

Albert Einstein!

But I’ll write more about that next week!

So for now, let’s go to Lake Schwielowsee.

Yeah!

Lake Schwielowsee!

How to use the Lake Schwielowsee Visitor’s card / Schwielowsee ‘Gästekarte’


The Lake Schwielowsee Visitor’s card / Schwielowsee ‘Gästekarte’ is a tourist tax required by the region, because it’s classed as a “resort town.”

It’s only necessary if you stay overnight between April 1st – October 31st. If you do, your host / hotel, etc. will have the card ready for you before you arrive.

There’s no need to panic as the tourist tax is just €1.00 per night, and only applies if you’re over 18!

In return, you get a Lake Schwielowsee Visitor’s card / Schwielowsee ‘Gästekarte’ which you can use for discounted payment on leisure activities!
