A large sandy beach directly on the water to bask in the sun and have a swim make this location stand out. Kleiner Müggelsee has the right bathing spot for families, a group of friends and even lovers. If you're craving sun, you can bask there and shade is provided under the trees. The 100 metres descent from the beach into the clear, emerald-green water is gentle, the soil under your feet soft and welcoming.
Another little cove for bathing is slightly off the beaten track - the big rocks on the back are the ideal spot for romantic kisses. Restaurants nearby will provide a safe haven should you feel hungry!
