So, Berlin weather can be very cold in winters with temperatures often dipping below zero.Frost and snow can also happen as it happened in 2010 and 2011. But rain and wind and temperatures just a bit above zero are more common for Berlin weather in winter time. As well as cold dry days when you can enjoy walking around Christmas market shops and drink hot wine which Germans call Gluewein and eat delicious grilled sausages in Germany called Wuerstchen.
If you do not mind we will from time to time teach you some German. Who knows may be you will start to like German and want to study it in Berlin... About this subject we will talk in our pages devoted to studying in Berlin.
In 2011 as well as in 2010 winters were so terribly cold that people in Berlin and in whole Germany started to be suspicious that Siberia was expanding towards Germany. As majority of locals keep their cars in the streets, they were so much unhappy you can not imagine.
Because may be you do not know but there is a popular song saying that German men love German cars much more than German women. Can you imagine the size and impact of this disaster?
Ok, we will tell what happened at the end. Winter was over. Berlin S-Bahn started to work better. All locals laugh about Metro or in German S-Bahn- Unexpectedly winter has come. And no solution for poor S-Bahn all have to wait when it will be warmer. And then as spring comes, and be sure it always comes to great city, men start to be more interested in women and atmosphere changes- all start to look better, eyes full of happiness and expectations of a wonderful time. Really, spring is beautiful in Berlin. A lot of trees are in blossom, nature manifests its sympathy to human beings. Harmony can be felt in the Berlin air.
We love this time. The best time in Berlin we believe is from middle of spring until mid of the Fall. And then thanks to the best events of the year the rest of the time is easier to overcome.
We mean the dark time from middle of the Fall until winter is over. Christmas time makes Berlin especially attractive not only for tourists but for Berliners also. Christmas is one of the most loved events in Germany. Even atheistic East loves it without going into religious aspect. It is the best time for families. In spring you can feel the real abudance of all when the Berlin weather is good. If you do not find it good you can spend your valuable time indoors enjoying such tourist attractions in Berlin as concerts, theater, museums and shopping.
This beautiful city has a lot to offer. If it is raining cats and dogs why should you go to stare at the Berlin Wall? Go shopping, or eating out in a restaurant.
