The Institute of Meteorology and MeteoGroup Deutschland GmbH are offering a service for allergy sufferers again this year. Information about the current pollen count as well as pollen forecasts for Berlin are being made available online at www.met.fu-berlin.de/de/polleninfo and by calling +49 9001 270 643 (0.62 euro / min).
With a change in the weather on April 8, the temperatures have risen steadily in Berlin, reaching up to 24 degrees Celsius on April 15. The mild weather functioned as a wake-up pulse for vegetation. The coldest March in more than 100 years was fortuitous for allergy sufferers, as the snow and frost in March kept the plants in hibernation; the Arctic air masses greatly restricted the development of pollen.
