Gone swimming in Berlin (in the Spree)

Berlin has been rated one of the world’s most sustainable cities by the design and asset management consultancy ARCADIS.

Amongst other things, sustainability in Berlin means that residents will have the opportunity to swim in the city centre, as a future result of the new Flussbad project. As the project webpage indicates, there are many existing Flussbad spaces in cities around the world, for example in Copenhagen.
