Germany offers lots to travellers all year-round, with the best time to visit largely depending on the experiences you’re looking for. If you want to come for the world-famous Christmas markets, obviously you’ll need to arrive in early winter, but in general, the best time to visit Germany for sightseeing is when the weather is the most pleasant, typically between May and September, with temperatures ranging from the low to mid-70s. Of course, this is also the time when the most visitors arrive, meaning big crowds, long lines for attractions, and the highest prices of the year. If you can come just before or just after the peak season, you’ll avoid the worst of the tourist rush while still experiencing pleasant weather and possible find some discount room rates too.
To help you make the best decision, this is what you can expect in every season.
