The Badeschiff, created from a recycled river cargo container and floating on the river Spree, is one of Berlin’s most unusual swimming pools. Since its opening in 2004, it has become a true hot spot in town: deep blue swimming pool, wooden boardwalks, an open-air bar, stunning view and a hell of a lot of trendy people. The small 32m by 8m pool is kept to a comfortable 24 degrees Celsius. Originally conceived by local artist Susanne Lorenz, the Badeschiff has inspired similar projects in urban rivers around the globe.
