We have those same wind patterns here in Western Canada, we call them Chinooks. We had one just a few days ago- the weather went from -35° C to 4° C. Now we’re back in the deep freeze, but it was a welcome break

Hi there. I think you were referring to this post http://willkommen-in-germany.tumblr.com/search/foehn and Canadian weather is really impressive. Northern Germany is around the Canadian Souths‘ longitude, but weather patterns here are different, in part due to the Gulf Stream and the North Atlantic Drift. I think I might die at -35 Celsius — more of a warm weather person and so not into snow! I mean, it looks pretty and all and frozen lakes are fun, and icicles are pretty… but after about a week of it, I‘d rather sit under palm trees on a beach, sipping ice cold drinks. 🙂 We have a lot of rain and (depending on location) more or less ice and snow in Germany in winter but unless you‘re in the highest mountains, temps rarely go below – 10 C or – 12 C, and for most of the country probably linger more around – 5 to + 10 for the winter on average. When I was a kid there was more snow, too.

Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Bayern (Bavaria), Southern Germany, is an hour by car from Munich, and the ride is a beautiful stretch of Autobahn, unfortunately not the whole way. Expect it to take up to 3 hours on weekends and public holidays. Trains leave to/from Munich every hour, the ride takes 90 mins on the local and 60 on the express. It’s also a nice end to a Romantic Road day trip beginning in Rothenburg, driving down south, stopping at various recommended heritage towns, ending in Garmisch for an overnight stay, or better yet, a few days, as it is a good base to drive out and back to Füssen’s Neuschwanstein castle and to Innsbruck/Austria along spectacular mountain views.

Winter in Hürth-Hermülheim. Hürth is a town in the Rhein-Erft-Kreis of Nordrhein-Westfalen, Northwestern Germany. It shares borders with the city of Köln (Cologne). Hermülheim as a village was first mentioned in 943. In former times, the Roman Eifel Aqueduct, which supplied Cologne with drinking water, went through Hürth. A couple of springs and streams in today’s area were used for that purpose before the Eifel aqueduct was built. Remnants of the Roman aqueducts can still be found underground.
