Sunset Over Wannsee

A swan shows off for the camera during the sunset over the lake at Wannsee in Berlin

After spending the sunny part of Saturday being silly and getting sunburnt at Slow Travel Berlin’s sports day for adults, the Slowlympics, watching the sunset over the Wannsee from a small sandy beach was a relaxing way to end the day.

Berlin has many lakes and on sunny summer days Berliners flock to them to sunbathe and swim.  Wannsee is the first Berlin lake that I have visited (unless you count drinking at Café am Neuen See in the Tiergarten) but James and Zoë from überlin make a compelling case for a trip to Schlachtensee.

    Superb pictures and they certainly do the sunset justice. Stunning.

      Thanks Mark. It was a great little spot and a wonderful introduction to Berlin’s lakes.

      Thanks Gilly. Stunning is exactly what it was and Steffi even managed to persuade the Swan to pose for me!

    What beautiful photos! The swans make these photos even more lovely. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks you Anarya. I agree about the swans. I was very lucky that the swan decided to perform for the camera when I took the first shot in the post.

    Just lovely series. I’m surprised you had the energy after those super athletic games. We could barely roll our full bellies over to the Bier Meile. And thanks for the mention on Marienburger. More beers & burgers soon I hope.
