From spring sunshine and GDR propaganda to diplomatic deep freezes, rock comebacks and legendary lockups, The Local brings you the best photos from this week in Germany.

Sunny skies greeted the end of the fourth mildest winter on record this week, while diplomatic relations between Germany and Russia plunged into a deep freeze over Ukraine.  

Meanwhile, The Rolling Stones and wildcats both announced a comeback in Germany, while footballing legend Uli Hoeneß began his jail sentence for tax evasion.

A cheerier picture was seen on the streets of Munich and Berlin during the annual St Patrick's Day celebrations - almost worthy of a new exhibition of official colour photos showing the brighter side of life from the GDR.
