About the video

Most winters there are at least a few days in Berlin when the lakes freeze over. This brings out people of all ages who find time to enjoy the ice.

On this sunny Thursday afternoon there were families, hockey players, teens, adults, grandparents all out enjoying the smooth lake ice. You could see people walking, skating, with skateboards and strollers. It felt like a very communal experience.

It was a great place to see smiles, often buried in scarves during gray Berlin winter days.
