Ich Bin Ein Berlin Swimmer!
A Much-Anticipated Natural River Park is in the Works for Berlin. Ein englischer Artikel über Flussbad auf der Seite von Naruproject.org
The Flussbad Berlin (“river pool”) project is many years in the making and aims to turn an old, more or less unused, dirty city canal into a massive, 840-meter long ‘natural’ pool, complete with public locker room facilities, floating piers, and even competitive swimming lanes. That makes it roughly 16 Olympic-sized swimming pools in length, but without all the red eyes, dry skin, and expense that comes with chlorine and other chemically-based water treatments.
