Winter swimming in Germany

In Russia people taken a dip in the ice-hole on Epiphany, in Germany, too, is a similar tradition. On January 6 brave people plunged into the cold waters of Lake Heidesee in East Germany.

On the street was 6 degrees below zero, but daredevils were full of fun and smiling at the camera and showed chunks of ice from the lake. The sight amused observers on the shore, who wrap up in warm jackets and hats.
