As close to the Spree as possible

Badeschiff means bathing ship, the brainchild of a local artist huge swimming pool made out of the shell of an industrial barge that floats in the river. The somewhat dirty part of the eastern Berlin Treptow, seems a unlikely place for sand-and-surf splashing, but once you pass through the entrance gate, there is cool bright sand, hammocks, folding beach chairs and the cool blue water of the pool itself, where you can swim from 8 a.m. until midnight the water is heated to 24 degrees Celsius and filled with 400,000 liters of fresh water. At night, the pool is lit and you have Berlin’s night sky. The atmosphere most incredible.

In the company of the pool there are concert halls and a old ship MS Hoppetossa with club music and restaurant.

Take salt dip

It is an hour car ride outside Berlin but it is also the most beautiful thermal saltwater spa I have ever seen. The variety of pleasure choices is endless, underwater geysers, massage jets, jacuzzi , moist saunas, dry saunas running out in the snow during winter, a bath in goat milk or why not beer bath since we are in Germany, all kind of massages and the prices are really good.

And to get there is really easy:

Take the R1 train from e.g. Alexanderplatz, direction Frankfurt oder, change to train OE35 in Furstenwalde Bahnhof, and get off in Bad Saarow bahnhof, walk 500 meters and you are in for a treat!

Main components according to an analysis of the healing water:

Sodium 8.65 g/l
Calcium 0.51 g/l
Magnesium 0.23 g/l
Chloride 14.46 g/l
Sulphate 0.29 g/l
Bicarbonate 0.23 g/l

Soak and float

I was here when Germany was winning the European football cup, perfect timing, there was nobody there! But even thou its a magical place. The pool with warm salt water, where you just float in a dimmed lighting and with underwater music or if you look ahead on their website a harp concert for example, is true relaxing experience for all your senses. The center dome has a round window in the ceiling where moonlight comes in or you can float and look at the stars, open until midnight. There is no obligation of wearing a bathing suits except in the pool which a some customers make use of. There are all kind of different saunas and every hour with various infusions in the Finnish sauna, and of course jacuzzi and a heated outdoor pool.
