Urlaub zu Hause: Die 5 schönsten Radtouren am Wasser in Berlin mit Baden, Picknick und Natur
Berlin is ideal for a vacation at home. Urban life and big city flair paired with lots of nature and water. In these special times, when you can’t wander far away anyway, the good is all the closer. Berlin has so many different facets that it is sometimes hard to believe that you are still in Berlin. It is particularly idyllic on the water with a lot of nature. Picnic blanket, bathing suit and provisions in your luggage and the day is perfect.
I love bike tours on the water in Berlin. From the Landwehr Canal in lively Kreuzberg to the cozy Müggelsee to the perhaps lesser-known Nordgraben in Reinickendorf, Berlin offers so many opportunities to cycle along the water.
In this article I have put together my 5 favorite bike tours on the water in Berlin. Have fun cycling.
1. Around the Müggelsee
The Great Müggelsee is the largest lake in Berlin. From Friedrichshagen, the bike tour leads through New Venice and further along the European cycle route R1 through the Müggelheim forest.
Meinen Blog gibt es auch in Buchform. Einmal "Radtouren am Wasser Berlin & Umgebung" mit 25 Touren entlang von Spree, Havel und Wannsee und "Radtouren für Langschläfer Berlin" mit 35 Halbtagestouren in der Hauptstadt und Umgebung.
2. Heiligensee to Potsdam
The Havel cycle path accompanies the Havel from its origin in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania to its mouth in Saxony-Anhalt. This stage runs from the tranquil Heiligensee to glamorous Potsdam.
When you think of rivers in Berlin, most people think of the Spree, Havel or Landwehr Canal. There is a beautiful river, which is also equipped with a wonderful bike path. Meant is the 29 km long Panke.
4. Strausberg Lakes
Summer in Berlin is always the best time of the year. So it fits perfectly if you can combine a bike tour with a swim in the lake. Along the Strausberg Lakes, you can take a break here at a variety of swimming spots.
5. Zehlendorf chain of lakes
This bike tour leads past ten lakes between Charlottenburg and Zehlendorf. Lietzensee, Halensee, Grunewaldsee, Krumme Lanke or Schlachtensee are just a few of them. In between beautiful villas and lots of nature in the Grunewald.
You can find these and many other great bike tours on the water in my book „Radtouren am Wasser Berlin und Umgebung“
