Short summary
Annual ice phenology was compiled for the largest river (Danube) and lake (Balaton) in eastern–central Europe back to AD 1774 and AD 1885, respectively. The dates of the first appearance of ice and freeze-up have shifted to later. Break-up and ice-off have shifted to earlier, except break-up on Lake Balaton. The derived centennial records of freshwater cryophenology for the Danube and Balaton are readily available for detailed analysis of the temporal trends or other climatological purposes.
