Berlin | Oberbaumbrücke

Berlin | Oberbaumbrücke

While most of Europe has been blanketed in snow this week, Berlin has managed (for once in winter) to stay sunny – but it’s misleading since temperatures have dropped to as low as -13C at night with highs of -5C or -6C during the day! Whenever there are several consecutive days of sub-zero temperatures, chunks of ice collect on the river Spree upstream of the Oberbaumbrücke in Eastern Berlin, as shown here shot earlier today during blue hour.

Berlin | Gendarmenmarkt Christmas Market

Berlin | Gendarmenmarkt Christmas Market

It’s suddenly a lot colder here in Berlin again – not even going above freezing during the day. Spring is probably not far away now, but with these cold temperatures it makes me think of dark evenings, snow, and Christmas markets – like this one on Gendarmenmarkt.
