Make your trip a warm and mem­o­rable one with th­ese unique Berlin ac­tiv­i­ties. BY LAU­REN OYLER

Short days of gray skies sap even the most har­dened Ber­liner’s en­ergy – and cre­ativ­ity. Ev­ery Oc­to­ber, as the ice cream stores be­gin to shut­ter for the win­ter sea­son, the tem­per­a­tures sink, as do our hearts. By Jan­uary, the ex­cite­ment of the Christ­mas sea­son has van­ished into the thin, cold air.

So… what to do? This ever-present va­ca­tion ques­tion takes on new in­ten­sity in the win­ter, when sim­ply en­joy­ing the out­doors isn’t an op­tion. But don’t let bad weather get you down. Luck­ily, you hap­pen to be in one of the most ex­tra­or­di­nary places in the world. Some es­pe­cially Berlin twists on clas­sic travel ac­tiv­i­ties may be just the push you need to shake off the win­ter blues.
