Sunset at Jungfernsee

21 February 2021 • 23:00

We spent the afternoon near Potsdam on the banks of the Jungfernsee, which translates to “Virgin Lake.” After a prolonged period of cold and snow, it was great to get out of the house and be outside for a few hours with only a light jacket on.

The location here is across the water from Glienicke Bridge, also known as the Bridge of Spies. This is where the Americans and Soviets would exchange captured prisoners during the Cold War, starting with Gary Powers’ exchange for Rudolf Abel.
