The number of individuals participating in the Flussbad Berlin Cup and the River Swimming is limited due to capacity constraints. An early online registration is therefore recommended. On the day of the event, depending on the number of participants confirmed in advance, it might still be possible to register spontaneously at the last minute on site.
The registration and changing areas as well as toilets and sanitary facilities will be located on the premises of the "Märchenhütte am Monbijoupark" on Monbijoustraße 3, 10117 Berlin (site plan). There will be guarded changing rooms (separate for men and women), cold-water showers as well as warm and cold drinks and fruit provided. Access to the closed-off participant area at the Märchenhütte will only be granted to registered participants (with the official armband).
