The sunny weather has finally arrived! When people aren't busy soaking up the sun's rays, they're taking to Instagram to share their summery pics.

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.
