The Badeschiff is one of the most amazing beach bars in Berlin. Its pool floats since 2004 on the river Spree. Besides a swim, you can enjoy the panoramic views of the city. A wooden footbridge connects the pool to the river bank where you can sometimes enjoy life music, have drink in the sun or play beach volleyball. The bar offers a variety of cocktails, but you can also get a bit to eat if you are hungry.
Swimming in the Badeschiff pool
Take a dip in the swimming pool that floats in the river or grab a drink at the beach bar. Badeschiff is the perfect get away from the city. The sky-blue swimming pool has a water depth of 2.05 metres. For children, there is an additional area where they can build their sandcastles. You can have a swim in the pool or do Stand Up Paddling on the Spree. If you want you can also take a Stand Up Paddling (pricing) or Yoga class (13 Euro, entrance fee included).
Yoga on the Badeschiff
Badeschiff offers peaceful morning Yoga classes from Juni to September
- every Tuesday (footbridge) and
- Thursday (sun deck) from 9 to 10 am.
