Imbedded into a mound of earth near the site of the former station Görlitzer Bahnhof, Bad am Spreewaldplatz reeks of the touch of a nineteen-eighties architect. More functional than fantastic, the complex has a 25m training pool, a baby pool, a wave machine, solarium and sauna facilities, slides, diving boards and jet pools. Particularly nice is the poolside café where you can refresh your weary body in between the different activities.

With a number of different pools, a 3m diving board, a disabled pool, a tanning studio, a sports hall, a bowling hall, a fitness studio and several other features (in fact everything that the modern day fitness fanatic demands), the SEZ is one Berlin's top venues for sport and relaxation. The highlight of the complex is the pool outside which is beautiful on a sunny day but a test of will on cold winter nights. Unfortunately lacks a 50m pool.

Beautiful Art Nouveau swimming hall with an integrated non-swimmers pool. Restuarant and tanning studio. Check the order of play before you go or you could find yourself at one of the naked bathing sessions - those Germans.

A venue for the swimming purist, this 70 year old bath is one of the oldest in Berlin and is considered one of the finest thanks to its impressive glass design. With only a 50m pool (preferred by lap pounders) and gym facilities, Stadtbad Mitte is to be appreciated for its classical charm.
