The best pool for lap swimming is Europasport pool at Landsberger Allee. Itâ€™s open until 10pm and has lanes. The pool is 50m but can be crowded. Another pool that is popular is GartenstraĂźe but it only has two lanes and the shallow end is only one metre deep. This pool is beautiful (see Jan Frodenoâ€™s instagram) but is full of head up breast stroke swimmers and is best avoided.
Unfortunately there is nothing around Potsdamer Platz. If youâ€™re willing spend a bit more money (20â‚¬ I think) you can swim in the 25m private pool at Holmes Place Ost Kreuz. Thatâ€™s where my husband swims and he often has a lane to himself.
The masters scene in Berlin isnâ€™t great. There are many clubs but the level of intensity is low and Iâ€™m yet to find a group that uses pace times.
Look on the website for Berliner BĂ¤der Betrieb, it has a list of all the Public Pools and opening times and let me know if you need help.
I will be flexible for time on Sunday and Monday morning to just take public transport and get to a good pool. Tue-Wed, the biz schedule is kinda packed, so plan to jog from the hotel. I will research some of these spots and report back! Thanks
