Most likely Sacrower See has the best water quality of all lakes in and around Berlin. Even in a depth of more than 4 metres, the water is impeccably clear.
The beach going into the lake descends only very gently and sharp stones on the ground or dirt are unheard of here. That's why it is self-explanatory that lots of people come here for a swim - which may be the only disadvantage of this truly beautiful lake.
The recreational area is somewhat on the smaller side, but when the Top10 Team came here for the field test, it was not overcrowded at all - to our great surprise. Our recommendation: If the green gets really too crowded, escape into the water for a refreshing swim!
A couple of meters into the forest you’ll also find another smaller bathing area where you can sunbath on the grass in between the shades of the trees of the surrounding woods.
You will also find the Restaurant Landleben with its beer garden that offers a perfect view of the lake and the bathing area. You can order tasty regional and fresh dishes. Guests of the restaurant can use the bathroom for free, other have to pay just a little fee for using it. A tiny food stall that sells snacks, ice cream and refreshing drinks also belongs to the grounds of the restaurant right by the beach.
