In the sunshine and spring-like temperatures, thousands of Berliners moved to the parks and nature on weekends. An estimated 1,800 people came to the Gardens of the World on Sunday lunchtime, a police spokesman said. In the Volkspark Friedrichshain there were even 2000. In the afternoon it could have been even more, they said.

According to the police, families mostly flocked to the parks. Young people played volleyball in the Volkspark. Joggers took advantage of the good weather, as did children who let off steam in playgrounds or ate an ice cream.

 The  weather change had already lured many people in the capital outside on Saturday. In the Mauerpark people picnicked or climbed a climbing rock, and they took their dogs out at the popular Grunewaldsee. In Mitte, strollers rediscovered one of their favorite pastimes: selfies in front of the Brandenburg Gate.

A spokesman for the DWD explained the change in weather by saying that the large-scale air circulation had completely changed. Previously a high pressure area brought cold air from the Arctic over Scandinavia, now a low pressure area over the Atlantic means that Berlin and Brandenburg get warm air from the southwest.
