We just can’t get enough

Seriously, I won’t do it but I’m very close to complaining about how hot it is in Berlin these days. BUT luckily there are lots of Strandbäder where you can go cool down.

I have to go to Sommerbad Pankow. Yes! It’s all about the roller coaster! I still remember our 1995 family trip to Lignano Sabbiadoro including a day at the close by water park.

Check out all the Strandbäder here

“Beisammen im Bad”

With Bäder still fresh in memory, why not mention the concert at Stadtbad Wedding on Thursday.

The 12-people Icelandic string ensemble, Skark, will perform in an installation by French artist Nicolas Dusollier while Austrian artist Ingrid Hora presents a video exhibition.

Sounds very multidisciplinary. Doors open at 21:00. €4,00 entrance.

While we wait for open water

I’m not really a big fan of indoor swimming pools but when the venue is as beautiful as Stadtbad Neukölln, it’s a different story. The venue opened again in March 2009 after 10 months of renovation.

Besides the two pools there is a herbal sauna, a steam bath, a Finnish sauna, sun showers and what have we not. Plus they offer massages.

There are several Bäder in Berlin that are worth a visit. More info here (German).

A tropical get-a-way

I have known about this place for ages but I still haven’t been there. Maybe the Holidays now are the perfect time to go? Charge batteries for New Years Eve?

Tropical Islands. A huge indoor tropical world with sandy beaches, warm water and a Tropical Rainforest and authentic tropic building structures. AND a Tropical Spa & Sauna complex.

Of course one would prefere the real thing. As with shopping malls I’m generally not a big fan of huge, artificial indoor man-made structures but judging from the photos this looks like it’s worth a visit. Just for the experience.

The possibly coolest thing: You can camp in the rainforest! So how I picture it: Gather a big group of friends, pack your beach equipment extravaganza and GO!

Tropical Islands is located approximately 60 km south of Berlin. Find more information on the website
