Berlin Beach Bars Overview

Badeschiff - Beach | Beach Bar | Outdoor Activity in Berlin

Though often thought of as the ultimate rigid European nation, Germany is obsessed with the beach, and Berlin beach bars are the ultimate expression of that. Located mostly on the banks of the Spree, these laid-back outdoor destination spots bring a tropical flare to Deutschland’s gorgeous capital.

The most traditional beach bar in Berlin is Strandbar Mitte, an outdoor riverside bar across from Museum Island that comes complete with palm trees, sand, and beach chairs. Here, guests can soak up summertime sun and sip the mixed drinks, losing themselves in the tropical atmosphere. A ways away in Kreuzberg, Badeschiff takes a more modern bent on the beach bar, trading the sand for a narrow outdoor pool that floats in the river itself. But for those just looking for a Corona and some outdoor relaxation, the nameless bar in the back of the Mauerpark Flea Market will do, though the lack of a waterfront makes it feel more dive bar than diving board.

A certain kitsch value comes with these locales – being surrounded by a city of stone and the specter of communism might detract from the island atmosphere for some – but for Berliners looking to get away, Berlin beach bars are a much-welcome respite.
