Berlin in January: Siegessäule in Tiergarten

Berlin in January: Siegessäule in Tiergarten

Berlin in mid-January. The days are getting longer again, it’s getting dark later. There are still the last remnants of snow in Tiergarten and Victoria towers atop the Victory Column Siegessäule. Election posters can be seen on the lampposts – in Berlin, the Bundestag election will be repeated in many constituencies on February 11 due […]

View from the subway station Bernauer Strasse in the direction of Mitte on a sunny day in January. The winter sun hangs low over Brunnenstraße; on the horizon, the TV tower once again shows its best side.

Berlin Weather: There’s snow – so it must be winter

It’s cold, it’s wet, and thesky is gey – back to the ‘Berlin cloud’. Sometimes something wet comes falling from above.. but is it rain? ..or is it snow? Nobody knows. But there are some traces of last night here and there: and it looks like “snow”. So it must be winter. Temperatures are currently […]

Berlin Weather: Spring Time in January

After some weeks of Berlin’s typical mostly grey-grey-cloudy winter weather today the day began with a surprise: Good Morning Sunshine! Blue skies, a few fluffy clouds, mostly sunny. The temperatures are between 5°C and 10°C – in the sun it feels a bit warmer. Feels like perfect weather conditions for a coffee or a drink […]
