One of the main tourist attractions in Wandlitz is the crystal clear lake. Across the road from the Wandlitzsee Railway Station is a complex devoted to various water sports and beach games. The complex is open from the 1st May till the 15th September and has different deals for tickets for the individual or the family.

I went for a walk around Wandlitzsee. You can get some wonderful views across the lake in certain places. Because it is so scenic, there are lots of upmarket houses dotted around the lake with back gardens that go down to the waters edge. That said there are still lots of places that you can go to that border the lake. It’s a good 2 to 3 hour walk going around the whole of the lake but there are a few places to sit.
The easiest place to start the walk is across the road from the Wandlitzsee Railway Station outside the Lido and walk around the lake in an anti-clockwise direction, which makes it easier to navigate than going the other way round.

Special events are held during the summer with demonstrations, concerts and working vehicles. The museum is a popular place for school trips.

As with all communist countries everyone was surpose to be equal but as the saying goes some were more equal than others. The top government officals of the GDR originally lived in the Pankow area of Berlin in the Majakowskring road. Unfortunately their lifestyle was too visible to the citizens in the area but they also worried about their security. A decision was made to construct a secluded community in a forest just outside Wandlitz. 23 large detached homes were built, each in their own grounds. The 2 km square area was hidden by a 5 km wall that surrounded the estate and a wire fence that surrounded the wall. Signs were put up describing it as a game research area. A staff of 650 servants & guards looked after the 23 families. The families could enjoy sports facilities, a cinema, restaurants, health centre and shops selling western goods and were provided by the cooks with gourmet quality food. The irony is the families were just like the normal citizens stuck behind their own Berlin Wall. When the Berlin Wall came down the families had to move out. It is worth a trip to the area for the walking and to view how the other half lived. The estate is now part of a clinic but you wander around and it is popular with walkers, cyclist and joggers. It is approximately a 30 minute walk from the Wandlitz Railway Station. From the end of the Wandlitz station platform turn right onto Bernauer Chaussee. After about 1km there is a T junction, turn left onto Wandlitzer Chaussee. Keep walking for about 2kms, on your right you will eventually see a green concrete wall. You can either find a gap in the wall or keep on walking until you find the entrance to the clinic at Brandenburgallee.
