The sun has been shining and the skies have been blue in Germany this week, and people have been making the most of it by sunning themselves on the beach or cooling off in their local lidos.
According to the German Weather Service (DWD), Germany will continue to enjoy these warm temperatures on Friday, with the highest temperatures across the country lying between 20C and 30C.

Those lucky enough to enjoy the sun have been sharing their glee on Instagram, as they kick back and enjoy drinks in the warm weather.

Don't get too excited, though. Temperatures are set to take a dip over the weekend, only reaching highs between 13C and 19C on Saturday. Sunday will be marginally warmer, with highs between 17C and 22C, but the skies will be overcast, according to DWD.
