Summer is here. Long days and warm nights; cool breezes and sunny days; refreshing lakes and smooth waters. Being around the lakes reminds me of growing up in Northern British Columbia, Canada. Surrounded by green forests, refreshing wa The lakes around Berlin are close enough for a day trip, yet far enough away from the city that you actually feel like you are on a mini-vacation. The water is the perfect temperature and there is always so much you can do at the lake. Things like kayaking, paddle boarding, sun bathing, or even renting a house boat. One can only say, “Lake days in Germany are perfect.”
Just west of the city, I found one of my favourite spots. Easy accessible by the S-Bahn, I can get out to one of the many lakes within 15-30 minutes from my apartment. Places like Wannsee and Griebnitzee are really easy to get to (for anyone in Berlin). Once leaving the station, the lakes are mere minutes away.
So how am I spending my weekends? If I am not travelling around Europe, you will find me out on the water paddling- both Stand Up Paddleboards and Kayaks.
