The Straussee is located just outside the doors of Berlin in a rural idyll at the town of Strausberg, named after it, in the district of Märkisch-Oderland. The average depth is just under ten meters, at the deepest point southwest of the ferry, the ice-age water has 20 meters. Around the lake there are small bathing spots where you can enjoy the clear water of the Straussee - either on the side of the city or on the other shore "beyond the lake", which can be reached via the Straussee ferry. The Straussee can be reached within a very short time by train from Berlin.
