Berliners have an obsession with beach bars – arising no doubt from the city’s distinct lack of a coastline to call its own – and one of the best of the bunch is Badeschiff, which contains an outdoor bar, concert venue, and swimming pool located on the banks of the Spree River.

With just a minimal entrance fee, an international flock of sunbathers, families, and young people gain access to sand and sun and the right to lounge the day away on the deck chairs and beds scattered throughout the premises.

Mellow house music plays in the background as patrons soak up the rays, but the real highlight is the long, narrow outdoor pool floating in the river. Swimmers must rinse off with a required (and cold!) shower before taking a dip, but the refreshing water is well worth the quick-freeze rinse.

After a swim or some time in the sun, patrons can satisfy their taste buds by grabbing a drink at the tiki-style bar or a bite to eat at the grill.

When night falls and most families head home, the party heats up with DJs, live bands, and late-night dips in the pool.

During the colder winter months, the venue keeps its doors open by erecting futuristic bubble-like tents over the docks and the pool. Inside the enclosed structure is a sauna and lounge where guests can escape from the cold, have a light snack, linger over some drinks, and even get a massage.

As off color as it may initially seem, perhaps Badeschiff’s owners are exactly right when they describe this crazy collection of bar, beach, and watery playground as “the most unusual bathroom in Europe.”

Badeschiff - Arena
P G. Apr 26, 2013
The incredible idea to build a pool with container is fantastic. It works perfectly. Of course there is a lot of people that wants to go there, but everything is very well organize there is a limit of persons that can be inside of the space and inside of the pool. It was really hot in that day so to go inside of the pool. Great events, music and ice people. Usually it's somewhere in between 5 and 10e. Sometimes when Arena it's open you can choose from 4 different floors. I really like it every time i went there.
Worth the trek but stay a while

The spot was pretty empty when we showed up, but it was early in the afternoon on a Sunday and the music was just starting to shift more to the night's roster. The riverside pool is COLD but well worth the jump in (and photo op). On a hot sunny day the place has got to be the best beach bar in the city. We stayed for a dip in the pool and a few beers, because the view is amazing the vibe super chill. It's worth the travel if you want to stay a while, make the cover cost worth it.
