The Badeschiff Berlin
is probably the most unusual swimming pool in Berlin. The floating pool was constructed in 2004 from the middle segment of a so-called Schubleichter - a cargo ship for river travel - and anchored firmly in the Spree. The Badeschiff Berlin sees itself in the tradition of old river swimming pools of the 18th and 19th centuries. The Badeschiff became known nationwide mainly through the live broadcasts of the World Cup soccer club on ARD.
When you enter the Badeschiff area, you first come to a sandy beach with a cocktail bar and volleyball court directly on the Spree. If you can get hold of a place, you can comfortably lie down in a deck chair and watch the hustle and bustle. As a rule, the bathing ship is very well attended on sunny days. Over a wide wooden bridge construction you reach the actual bathing ship and can comfortably relax, swim and enjoy the panoramic view over Berlin and the Spree. To ensure the safety of the large and small bathers, a lifeguard is on site.
