The 3rd Berlin Flussbad Cup will take place on 2nd July 2017
We are happy to announce our 3rd Berlin Flussbad Cup: we will hold our traditional swimming competition – if the water quality allows it – on Sunday, 2nd July 2017, between Bode Museum and Palace Bridge (www.flussbad-berlin.de/events). This event not only offers the possibility for ambitious athletes to compete for the Cup, but also for all recreational swimmers to go for a swim at the stretch of the Flussbad to-be in front of the scenery of Museum Island. Registration will be open on 1st March 2017 via our website. Details will follow.
The realisation of the Berlin Flussbad Cup is made possible due to the since 2014 existing funding by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety and the Berlin Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment as part of their "National Urban Planning Project" programme.

The goal of the annual swimming competition is not only to further communicate the Flussbad project, but moreover to draw attention to the potential benefits of a clean and swimmable Spree River and to send out a clear signal on behalf of water conservation and protection in general.
