The Scharmützelsee which is situated near Berlin is a very good destination for mini-breaks or day trips and a good opportunity to let it all hang out. Little snacks and a few rays of sunlight helped me to travel back to my childhood.
The state of Brandenburg is very famous for its numerous and beautiful lakes – especially the region south east of Berlin. One of them is the “Scharmützelsee” which is a one hour drive away from the German capital (by car or train).
As a child I spent my whole summer holidays at the beaches of this lake. Last year I returned to this region in the very beginning of spring. I hadn’t been there for a long time but could recall a lot of places and memories (you know, all the children stuff…). The few indications for the upcoming warm season add to my short childhood-flashback-trip.
The villages Bad Saarow and Windisch Rietz are situated directly next to the lake. Because of its character as a health resort Bad Saarow is a bit quiet and expensive. You’ll find a more casual atmosphere in Windisch Rietz.
There are a lot of opportunities to catch a little snack at the lake shore such as a typical German Bratwurst or a tasty ice cream cornet.
