Badeschiff, Berlin

3.8
#23 of 400 in Nightlife in Berlin
The Badeschiff (in English, "bathing ship") is a floating public swimming pool in Berlin, the capital city of Germany. Situated in the East Harbour section of the River Spree, the Badeschiff allows citizens to swim in a sanitary environment near the river. The Spree itself is far too polluted to permit safe swimming.
The Badeschiff opened in the summer of 2004 as an art project organized by the Stadtkunstprojekte (City Art Project Society) of Berlin. It was created by local artist, Susanne Lorenz, with Spanish architects AMP and Gil Wilk, to enliven city life along a long-neglected stretch of the Spree.
The pool was converted from the hull of a vessel measuring eight by thirty-two metres. It is open to the public daily from 8am to midnight. Disc jockeys commonly spin records outside the pool entrance where there is also a bar.

  • Amazing Place one of the best ever, if there is sunny and warm day in Berlin there is no better place to be. Even if you wait for 2h in the line to get in, it's still worth it. A lot of handsome people and very international and multicultural, but still you can find some locals. Drinks as good, food could be better but anyway I love this place.
  • A very nice place to spend time. It has a great atmosphere and vibe. The pool is also good but you have to wait in a queue to go to pool. However an amazing experience overall.
