Hamburg: Alster Lake frozen! Alstereisvergnügen! (Updated with more pictures)

After 15 years it´s the first time that the Alster Lake in Hamburg (Germany) celebrates the "Alstereisvergnügen". Due to the hard (brrrr...) winter this time the ice was thick enough for the authorities to let the people party on the biggest lake of Hamburg, the Alster. Almost 1 million people will visit it over this weekend!
