Berliners are mad for beach bars and the Oststrand is one of the best. Perfectly located mid-way along the East Side Gallery, stop-off for a chilled fruit beer or an ice-filled cocktail and sit back in a deck chair watching the boats go by. It's not quite the sea, but the river, paddling pool and sand are a pretty good substitution for a beach.
