Another easy-to-dive spot at the german shore to the baltic sea. Nothing spectacular, but fields of nicely overgrown smaller rocks and stones guarantee some nice encounters with the typical smaller marine life of the baltics. We have seen some scorpion fish, pipefish, common gudgeon and of course jellyfish. In essence, people not familiar with marine life or expecting for sharks are usually disappointed, macro photographers may be hard to get out of the water.

Good site for Tec-Dive. The road to the dive site is restricted, usually you'd need a permission to drive there, but divers are tolerated to pass the way. There are some parking lots at the dive site, but: unless you don't have the drive-through license you're not allowed to park here! Quite confusing and frustrating, it's an about 15min walk to park legally (=outside the resident's zone). Otherwise you need to consider a ticket for illegal parking.. about 15€!

Not one of the top-notch sites, but very easy to reach by car. Nice "after-work" dive site :) From Ritterfelddamm turn into Uferpromenade and follow the street for app. 200m. To your right you will spot a gate and beyond that a large lawn, leading to the waterfront. Just leave the car somewhere near the gate but DON'T BLOCK the gate! As this is an emergency "entrace" to the lake for the police and emergency physicians (your car will otherwise be towed - fee for being towed is app. 250$ in Germany) Glienicker See is also known as Pferdekoppel.
