I admit that finding something positive about being in Berlin right now with the temperatures so low is really, really difficult. But we wouldn’t be “I Heart Berlin” if we wouldn’t be able to deal with this little problem, right?
One of the very few upsides of these temperatures, and in fact one that is absolutely exclusive to it, is that we get to set foot on parts of Berlin that we normally never can: The canals, rivers and lakes of the city that are now frozen shut and create new spaces to spend time on, for instance ice skating, playing ice hockey, or watching our dogs clumsily slip on the icy surface. Such fun!
The weekend pretty much exploded with your impressions of places such as Landwehrkanal, the Engelbecken or various lakes with lively activity on them. Also the Spree is a magnificent sight these days with the broken pieces of ice floating around. We collected some of our favorite impressions on Instagram and put them together here in a little gallery for you. Make sure to follow these Instagrammers linked below each photo to see more of Berlin.
