Dash­ing Through The Snow

Where Berlin - - SIGHTSEEING -

Imag­ine there’s been a big dump­ing of snow overnight, and you wake up to a trans­formed city cov­ered in beau­ti­ful white, fluffy snow. If you have kids (or even if you don’t), now is the time to go to­bog­gan­ing! Even in this rather flat city, there are thrilling down­hill rides to be had. For ex­am­ple, at Onkel-Tom-Straße (U Onkel-Toms- Hütte), Volkspark Pren­zlauer Berg (S Landsberger Allee), Ficht­en­berg (S Botanis­cher Garten), Volkspark Friedrichshain (U Sene­felder Platz), or more cen­trally lo­cated at FritzSchloß and Carl-von- Ossi­et­zky parks (S+U Haupt­bahn­hof). Now, you prob­a­bly didn’t bring a sled with you, but no need to rush out and buy one. If you don’t feel like tak­ing the im­pro­vised dare­devil ap­proaches, go for the safer bet and rent one from Fahrrad­sta­tion out­lets (www. schlit­ten­ver­mi­etung.de) where they make a small do­na­tion on your be­half with each rental. An ex­hil­a­rat­ing way to keep warm!
