Picture of the week: Wild Swimming in Germany

Wild Swimming in Germany

There are many beautiful lakes located throughout Germany which are known for their pristine, clear waters. Known as the “land of a thousand lakes,” the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern alone boasts some 2,000 sparkling lakes. The deep bodies of water that make up the Mecklenburg Lake District were formed when the glaciers melted at the end of the last Ice Age, and are enjoyed by swimmers throughout the summer.
