Pond at Exerzierplatz

Postcard from Franconia No. 464

Pond at Exerzierplatz

In February 2022, the storm low pressure system “Ylenia” passed over Germany and churned up the water surface of this pond, which is only a few centimetres deep, on the “Exerzierplatz” in Erlangen.

The same spot just a day later - the calm after the storm:
