The unseasonably warm weather of last week, which saw a high of 22 degrees Celsius in Rosenheim, Bavaria on November 21st, came to an end over the weekend.
Although there was no new snow, temperatures dropped into single digits, ushering in heavy frosts.
The DWD (German Weather Service) correctly predicted the temperatures as “glühweintauglich” (mulled-wine-appropriate), conveniently coinciding with the first weekends of many Christmas markets across Germany.
Sunday also saw swathes of mist descending throughout the country. One Instagram user captured the New Town Hall in Hannover, shrouded in the mist.

The subzero morning temperatures saw a frost across the country, here crystallising a leaf in a courtyard in the town of Sehnde, Lower Saxony.

It was not crisp and dry in all of Germany, however. In Wismar, on the Baltic coast in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, strong winds caused floods, resulting in this junction being submerged in the harbour town.
The colder weather is set to continue through to the end of November.
