Google Maps

Following Berlin’s north west stretch through Potsdam, to below the town of Brandenburg, the Havel flows through a chain of partially quite large lakes.
This includes the Niederneuendorfer See (lake), the Tegeler See and the Spandauer See between Henningsdorf and Spandau.
Opposite to the Island, Grosser Wall, the Berlin Spandau Schifffartskanal (canal) branches off south east. Below the Spandau locks, opposite to the old town of Spandau, the River Spree then flows into the Havel to pass later through the Tiefwerder meadowlands and the last of Berlin’s remaining natural swamp and pike breeding grounds.
Shortly after this, the Grosser Wannsee with the Pfaueninsel (Peakock Island) and the Jungfernsee then flows off west into the Sacrow-Paretzer Kanal.

Then you walk through meadows and undergrowth over a trail, soon to see a lake from afar, just as you would in Upper Bavaria. Two lakes are connected here, surrounded by forest, reeds and a long sandy beach.

The Obersee emerged in 1895 as a water storage for the Löwenbrauerei [brewery] located at Berliner Straße. There was no digging necessary as the area previously was a natural depression. After the turn of the century the second residential colony of Hohenschönhausen was established around the area. Today the area of the lake is completely enclosed.
