FÃ¶hn is a peculiar thing. It is a type of wind which blows over the Alps (and no doubt other mountain ranges in the world as well). It has mood-altering effects on the inhabitants of Munich and neighbouring areas.
In fact, if a Munich resident is feeling dizzy, sick, depressed, has a headache, or is non-specifically ill any other way, then you can guarantee that someone will say: oh, it must be the Foehn
For a more technical explanation see Wikipedia: Foehn
See also the TT chat forum: Is there FÃ¶hn at the moment? I feel dizzy!
Sometimes mis-spelt as: FÃ¶n or Fohn
Sometimes confused with: KreislaufstÃ¶rung
