THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT
When To Travel To Germany
The Best Time To Visit: May-June & September-October
- High Season: July - August
- Low Season: November - March
- April - June (spring), July - August (summer), September - October (fall), November - March (winter)
Germany is a year-round travel destination, but generally the best times to visit are in the Spring (May-June) and the Fall (September- October).
May is probably the best month to visit overall because it's not too cool, not too hot and the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. In May, Berlin has a lot of festivals as well, making it an exciting time to visit our favourite city in the country.
Winters in Germany are cold, but of course if you're coming for skiing then this is the best time to be here. It's also not a bad time to come if you don't mind snow and you want to see some of the famous German Christmas markets.
The summer (July & August) is the most crowded time to visit Germany aside from perhaps Oktoberfest when more people come to drink beer than any other time of year.
Germany Weather Averages (Berlin on Holiday-Weather.com)
Hottest Month: July (18°C / 64°F)
Coldest Month: January (-1°C / 30°F)
Sunniest Month: July (8 hours / day Average)
Wettest Month: June (71mm of Rainfall)
We visited Berlin in June and loved it. The sky was sunny, it was warm but not too hot and there were enough tourists around without making it feel too crowded. The one issue we had was allergies. If you're a persona who is susceptible to allergies, then Spring and Fall will likely bring you a runny nose and sneezing, but it's still a great time to come to Germany.
