Berliner winter hot apple drink

Vodka in Berlin: Berliner Winter

It’s as if I’ve asked for this weather to write about this Berlin delicacy, trust me, I have not. But this suggestion is certainly making it easier to accept the first storms and snow. It’s like a simple Berlin version of a hot apple toddy, or a better Glühwein – nevertheless, it’s seriously delicious and will make you warm and jolly.

Winter: one more time…

I just took this picture and this is certainly not what we’ve all been hoping for, but I guess it will just make the very soon coming spring feel even better. We’ve made it through the most of it, why should we let this last bits of winter ruin our mood?

Guide: Winter 2013

Oh well, winter in Berlin is a grumpy and grim beast, only here to diminish our love for this city that turns into a grey slush as soon as September ends. There’s no way to sugarcoat the hard times between October and April and I surely wouldn’t recommend anyone to visit now – however, some of us live here and there actually are ways to sooth the pain.

Pretty enjoyable ways I’d even say, nightlife is never as excessive and fatal as during never ending winter nights, most of heavy German food is actually only to be savored when a chunky knit hides its consequences the next day and there are tons of beautiful cinemas to spend continuous days without sunshine in. Nevertheless I shied away from writing an actual guide until now (whereas I’ve done several funny-sunny summer guides…), preferring to indulge in bored melancholia and wishful thinking of glorious summer days. Still, attack is the best form of defense, so bring it on you icy bitch!
