In the river Spree you can find a most unusual swimming pool. The Badenschiff (‘bathing ship’) is the transformed hull of a cargo ship, which now floats in the river as a pool. It was dreamed up by artist Susanne Lorenz, who took part in the Stadtkunstprojekte (city art project) in 2004.

The goal was to liven up the area along the river Spree. You can swim here summer or winter, as they cover it when it gets colder. It’s got a bar that is a popular place for a drink, and DJs play here regularly.
