Germany Holidays

Germany is a country of contrasts – from abundant natural beauty to thriving cosmopolitan cities, from hard-hitting history to contemporary cool. There’s such an abundance of experiences to be had, that whenever you choose to visit Germany, you won’t leave disappointed. 

The summer months (between May and September) are the best months to visit Germany in terms of weather. Wherever about in Germany you stay, the weather will be pleasant. The later in the season you visit, the higher the chances are that you’ll experience some rain, but from May to June conditions are ideal for sightseeing.

While this is the best time to visit Germany in terms of weather if you’re hoping to avoid large crowds and peak season pricing on flights and accommodation, it’s probably best to plan your trip for the shoulder seasons in spring and autumn.

Spring (April to June) is a good option if you want to find that sweet balance between fewer crowds and lower pricing, while still enjoying pleasant weather. The weather in the spring can be somewhat unpredictable, sometimes offering you a glimpse of all seasons in just one day.

But if you’re not deterred by that, you can pick up some really good deals on flights and accommodation, and will enjoy a much more laid back experience without long queues.

Autumn (September to mid-October) starts off warm and mild in September but by October the cold is moving in and the weather can be slightly gloomier. Dazzling Autumn colors blanket the landscape, crowds are few, and you may even pick up a good deal on your room.

Winter is the quietest time to travel to Germany unless you’re hitting the Bavarian Alps for some winter sports or hoping to take in one of the many renowned festive markets. Germany gets fairly cold in winter, with snow and rain and grey skies. Dress warmly and check out our Germany packing list for insider info.

While it’s technically low season, the Christmas period does see a spike in tourism, so expect bigger crowds and inflated pricing around that time. November is very quiet, but be warned that a lot of hotels close at this time for maintenance before the Christmas rush, so plan ahead to avoid disappointment.

Best Time for Sightseeing in Germany

Sightseeing in Germany is best enjoyed in the summer months when the weather is warmer. However, this is the peak season when prices are higher than at other times of the year. Expect long lines at popular tourist attractions and jostling crowds wherever you go.

Late spring is a good time to enjoy pleasant (if a little variable) weather before the major crowds hit in summer. This will mean a much more enjoyable sightseeing experience without long queues. April and May can also yield some good deals on hotels and flights. 

Similarly, October can be a very good time for sightseeing once the Oktoberfest crowds have departed. It’s still warm and mild, with rain becoming more frequent towards the end of the month. Sightseeing at this time will be much more laid back without the throngs of other tourists.
