“Since records began it has never been so cold at the end of March in Brandenburg,” said Eva Wille from the German weather service (DWD).
At minus 19 degrees, Coschen in Brandenburg was the coldest spot in the country on Saturday night, with temperatures in the outskirts of Berlin also dipping to a record-breaking minus 17 degrees.
And the minus 17 degrees on Brocken mountain made it the coldest spring temperature in more than five decades.
This means that it’s turning out to be the coldest spring on record in both northern and eastern Germany.
