It is a wonderful lake, with planty of space to walk around and to stop, seat and take a dive. You can go alone, or with your family. If it is a hot summer day, it is perfect to go there, put your towel on the ground, and enjoy the lake. If you like, you can rent a boat and... More

Great place to take a day trip if you are looking to get out of the city and see some green. S-bahn drops you off about 15 minute walk from the "beach" areas which are really grassy knolls leading up to the lake. Bring a picnic and some friends.

It's usually packed with teenagers, as it is easily accessible by Subway, and free. Many little access points to the water and a few beaches. Water is very clean. No dogs allowed.

My parents and I did the approximately 7km walk all the way around the water, then sat down for beer and Gulasch soup. Beautiful, calm walk outside of the big city.

I love this lake. Quite, beautiful view and a nice bar to the taste a beer. Maybe in summer it is also good to swim.

A nice relaxing stroll around the edge of a lake is always a nice tonic. The Schlachtensee wasn't as spectacular as I'd hoped (maybe spoiled previously by living on the Starnberger See) but it made for a perfectly pleasant excursion.

The title sumd it up. Not spectacular, too crowded, but still... a lake in the forest next to a large city comes with its pros and cons. Horrible service at the restaurant at the northern tip of the lake, though.

There is a snack place at the station if you haven't brought a picnic. Trees run right down to the waterside all the way round the lake, there's not a... More

A beautiful lake in a charming area. One of the best places to go on a sunny day in Berlin. Very easy to get there by S-BAHN
