Not much open air swimming yet...

Among Berlin's many delights are its open-air swimming pools and lakeside bathing beaches. Unfortunately they're not very flexible when it comes to reacting to unseasonably warm weather (like it is now) - the BBB's official outdoor bathing season begins on April 28, with some locations not opening until the middle of May; until then sun-seekers will have to make do with the city's many parks, and anyone wishing to brave the still seasonably cool water (currently around 10°C) is limited to inofficial bathing "beaches" or the few privately-run ones, who's opening depends on the individual operators.

Currently only the Strandbad Weißensee appears to be operating.
