When summer brings hot and sunny days, the swimming pools and town pools of Berlin offer you a sweet escape. As we all work a lot, I focused on pools and locations in which you can relax and have a good time. Here are my top 5 swimming locations in Berlin.
Stadtbad Neukölln is one of Berlin's most beautiful places to swim and sauna! Since 2009 the historic swimming pool has been open in new splendor. The swimming hall is high and spacious, adorned with high columns and mosaics. Try the "romantic swim" on Saturdays and Sundays with dimmed lights and underwater music.

Take a dip in this swimming pool that floats in the river or grab a drink at the beach bar. The Badeschiff is one of the most popular locations in summer. Here at the unique beach bar one can relax and chill in the huge pool and enjoy the spectacular view over the river. At night it turns into a cool night club with electronic beats. They also offer massages and classes like open air yoga class.

Boutique Spa by Susanne Kaufmann
Rituals to nurture and pamper are combined with simple unostentatious architecture to create and relaxing atmosphere for the guests of the Boutique Spa by Susanne Kaufmann in Das Stue Hotel at Tiergarten. I love the swimming pool and floating sauna, in which you can truly relax.
