Köpenick in Winter, Spring and Summer
By far my favorite district in Berlin is Köpenick – I like the fact that it’s very green, full of water and has its own old town. As we visit it frequently to have a break from the rush of downtown Berlin, I have pictures of 3 different seasons of the same places in this article to show, that it’s always worth a visit.
First stop on this trip is “Köpenick Altstadt”, the oldtown of Köpenick. Mostly the fastest way is to take commuter train (S-Bahn) S3 to “Berlin-Köpenick” station and from there the Tram. The oldtown is situated on an half-island bordered by 2 rivers and a bay with the castle and the castle park at the front.
From the oldtown station “Schlossplatz Köpenick” the voyage goes on with Tram 61 in direction of “Rahnsdorf/Waldschänke” to “Strandbad Müggelsee” station. Close to the station is the entrance of the beach bath Müggelsee. Müggelsee is the largest lake in Berlin with an area of 7.4km², the beach bath is free of entrance all year long.
Beside the Müggelsee there are more things to go from “Rathausplatz Köpenick” station as it is a hub of several tram lines going to all over the Köpenick area – including the line 68, rated as one of the 10 most beautiful tram lines on the planet.
