What a beautiful winter this is in Berlin and Brandenburg! Snow everywhere, cold temperatures, hot Glühwein (hot red wine with spices), children playing in the snow…

Just the right time to ask what you use to go down a snowy hill. In German, you use a Schlitten. In some parts of Germany, this is called Rodel or Rodelschlitten. In English, there are two words with a different meaning. The correct word for Rodelschlitten would be sledge. A sleigh is bigger and drawn by raindeer, dogs or horses. This in German is called Schlitten as well. So don´t get hurt while dashing down a hill by sledge, end enjoy winter time!
