Berlin offers a lot of possibilities to do sports. You can go jogging almost everywhere – all you need is a pair of sneakers. Many public swimming pools (both in- and outdoor) are available throughout the city, and so are fitness centers, tennis courts, ice skating venues, football clubs/fields, etc.

For visiting a gym during your stay in Berlin we recommend you to not sign any contracts. The HU GYM Campus Fit in Mitte is a great opportunity instead. You can book a membership with daily access for either one month (25 €), or for three months (57€):  https://www.hochschulsport.hu-berlin.de/de/angebot/campusfit-hu-gym
