Müggelsee visit

I have made a number of posts about Müggelsee over the years so I don’t need to tell you much. Perhaps just to remind you that it is the largest of Berlins many lakes and you can find it to the south east of the city. I have never understood why most tourists never go to this lake.

It was very hot and humid yesterday so I took Colin and Jan to Müggelsee to cool off and later have a swim. Both asked to visit the lake and see it for themselves. I had an interview at 12 so we met up at my local station at 2pm and jumped into a S-Bahn.

We walked down the long main street and decided to stop at a restaurant next to the old brewery. Traditional German dishes with beer brewed in the next building. Tasty! We had a very long late lunch before walking around the corner to the lake.

We found an almost empty ferry about to leave so we jumped on. The upper deck was empty so we settled in and ordered a cold beer. We sipped them as we took a one hour tour of the shores of the lake and even went into the smaller lake called the ‘Small’ Müggelsee.

Back on shore we walked under the lake channel tunnel and stopped at a nearby beach. There were lots of people enjoying cooling off. Colin and Jan joined them be changing and jumping into the warm water of the lake.  They enjoyed cooling off before we walked back to the S-Bahn and back to our respective homes.  Next time you come to Berlin in summer, take time to visit Müggelsee.
