When to Go

Germany is a year-round destination. While Munich might be considerably further south than Berlin, the two cities have broadly comparable summers due to altitude of Munich. Our Europe Travel Experts suggest that May through to September are the most popular months and best for getting outdoors. Spring and Autumn hold real attraction as they are quieter and the weather is still pleasant. Winter is Christmas market time in the main cities.
