Berlin winter

I’m in Berlin and overnight Potsdamer Platz got ready for the winter / Christmas season.

The square is turning itself into a mini Alpine ski resort with a number of wooden huts selling everything from warm beer to roasted piglets. The largest hut is an “Austrian Pavilion” and looks like a cow shed uprooted from an Austrian hillside and flown to Berlin.

As I write, they are pumping water onto the ski slope so perhaps I will try the black run before flying home!
