    Luisa Köhler, 15 years old was there in December

    Unexpected extreme snowfalls led to problems when travelling. Already on the following day, however, sunshine and enormous amounts of condensation and slush, which led to dangerous slippery roads due to the constant night frost. Winterly temperatures of -8 – 2 degrees Celsius.
