Berlin has one of the longest climate records in the world (Cubasch and Kadow, 2011). In the 17th century mainly the family of the astronomer Kirch started measuring the temperature and wrote down general weather patterns. In the beginning of the 18th century the measurements became more regular including multiple measures per day. Over time, more inner city stations appeared but also disappeared. Therefore, this Berlin Climate Record is a moving station, but representable for the inner city of Berlin. Many approaches were combining these datasets including bias correction efforts. With this dataset from 01.01.1766 to 31.12.1934 we reactivate the long inner city temperature record. In this study, we digitized, analyzed, and corrected the data set on the daily time frequency. The dataset has been reconstructed from: "Das Klima von Berlin (II) Temperatur - Abh. des Met. Dienstes der DDR Nr. 103, Band XIII, Akademie-Verlag 1971"
