Blue Men cheer on annual cold plunge in Berlin lake

STORY: “It’s super cold, but it was fun,” one swimmer told Reuters, summing up the spirit of the occasion.

A sauna was set up on site, warmly appreciated by many of the bathers. Several expressed joy for the revival of the city's annual tradition, which was halted for two years due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The event was organised in collaboration with the Blue Man Group and offered the first 10 people to take the chilly plunge free tickets to a performance of theirs.
