  • Systemic changes

„Flussbad Berlin” seeks to transform and reactivate the largely unused 1.8 kilometre stretch of the Spree Canal in Berlin-Mitte along with its adjacent urban areas. The project involves a park landscape, an extensive natural plant filter and an 840-metre natural bathing area. Flussbad Berlin has a number of different and multilayered objectives; however, its main focus is on revitalising the existing natural and urban resources in the area, cleaning the river in this section and establishing direct public access to the canal. Along Museum Island, between the Humboldt Forum and the Bode Museum, a public space will be created that invites Berliners and visitors alike to swim in clean, uncontaminated water. The project foresees filtering the water in a completely natural way and also transforming the Spree Canal near the Fischerinsel into an ecological water landscape. The non-profit Flussbad Berlin Association is responsible for promoting and further developing the project.
