Schlachtensee the Rowboat  the Lake and Us …. / Berlin has beautiful lakes

And on Sunday, she said, we will go to Schlachtensee. Which by the way is her most favorite lake. The weather was picture book like and it took us not long to get there – almost to easy if I may say so. And so we went with 2 bottles of water, 3 towels and many fresh fruits. Lovely 👍🏼

Schlachtensee is a lake in the south west of Berlin, in the Steglitz-Zehlendorf borough (between the quarters of Nikolassee and Zehlendorf), on the edge of the Grunewald forest. The lake lends its name to the surrounding area and to the nearby Studentendorf Schlachtensee, a student residence. The area has been part of Berlin since 1920.

Size: 5.5 km, 8,7 m deep, location: Berlin, Zehlendorf 

 A poem from Ludovica Hesekiel (1847–1889) „Schlachtensee“:

„Die Kiefern neigen sich leise / blau liegt und still der See,

wir lauschen der alten Kunde / von Wendenlust und Weh.

Da kamen die Sachsen gezogen / hinein ins Heveller-Land,
und christliche Tempel erhoben / sich wo ein Götze stand.

Der grimme Bär von Askanien, / der brach der Wenden Macht,

der hat zuerst von allen / der Marken Größe gedacht.

Und endlich sanken die Wenden / besiegt und geschlagen dahin;

es donnert über die Kiefern, / wild heult der Sturm darin.

Der Regen peitscht die Wellen, / die lachende Schar wird stumm,

Am Schlachtensee die Geister / der alten Wenden gehen um.“
