    The Liepnitzsee is a crystal clear beautiful lake in the middle of a forest approximately 25 minutes walk from the Wandlitzsee Railway Station. It is a popular area for Berliners but virtually unknown to travellers. It has various sporting and leisure activities on and around the lake. In the middle of the lake there is a 40 acre island that can be reached by a ferry. Only non powered boats are allowed on the lake adding to the tranquillity. There are various marked trails in the area for bikers and walkers. At one end of the lake is a Youth Hotel that is popular with school groups.
