About Badeschiff, 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. Security do not allow any beverages to be brought in. Bags may be searched for bottles; even empty bottles can be confiscated.

Badeschiff, Berlin Reviews - Write a Review

  • Amazing spot! In a run down old industrial area is this magical beach, bar and pool on the river. Surrounded by warehouses converted into clubs and bars. If you are looking for a unique addition to your trip this is a good shout whether you decide to swim or not.

  • Very surreal place almost in the heart of Berlin. Absolutely a 'must' on a hot summer day.

  • Nice place, during the day you can do stand-up paddle board or use the swimming pool, at night bands perform live. It has a nice beach bar with sand; you can chill on the dock, nice beach chairs are available.

  • Disappointed. The two times we tried to swim here, we were turned away. The first time we were told the pool was booked for a private event. The person at the gate encouraged us to return. So, we came back a week later only to hear that kids must be able to swim on their own, without the use of a flotation device. Neither the private event closure or details about swimming requirements for kids were listed anywhere on their website. We wasted two mornings attempting to swim here. Don't go.

  • Do go. Swim, bask in the sun, unwind amidst the beautiful ambience (great music) and sip on a non-alcoholic milkshake. Amazing views of the pee-bridge and atlas fighters. Try to go before 11am to avoid the flocks of incredibly patient sheeple.
