The new winter connection will be particularly popular with winter sports enthusiasts in Berlin and Brandenburg. With snow guaranteed from December to May, the region is ideal for various winter sports. It’s particularly popular with cross-country skiers thanks to the 100-kilometre cross-country ski trail network with ideal conditions. Östersund is also an excellent destination for alpine and off-piste skiing. Those who prefer to spend their holidays without skis strapped to their feet can choose between ice skating, snowmobile safaris, dog and reindeer sledding as well as ice fishing and ice climbing. Whichever winter activity you choose, make sure you pack your warm clothes! The coldest month is January with temperatures as low as -30 degrees Celsius. The air is, however, incredibly clean and clear.
