Dreaming of spreading out your picnic blanket in a shady spot in the park and then taking a stroll along the river? You're not alone – we're all looking forward to next summer already.
As the temperature starts to rise, German cities become outdoor oases with plenty of water-based activities on offer. Explore canals or rivers by boat or stand-up paddle board or take a dip in one of the many bathing lakes. Saunter dreamily along the floodplains or catch some rays on the beach in cities like Hamburg or Berlin. Or why not cool off in the shelter of the lush green wooded areas in the likes of Leipzig or Wiesbaden? And then soak up more city summer vibes in the evening by meandering down the old-town alleys, still warm from the sun, or admire UNESCO-listed buildings in every style from Brick Gothic to Bauhaus. After all, even the most stunning architecture has a different glow about it in summer.
