Useful Information

Pick the perfect season for a German vacation

Germany experiences very different weather conditions depending on the season, so timing your visit is important. On one hand, winter breaks to cities like Bremen or Munich can be really enjoyable, with great Christmas markets and the sight of snow-covered churches. However, if you want warm weather and the chance to swim or hike in comfort, travel from June through September. In Germany there’s always something to do, so there’s not a “bad time to go.”

Know when to make the most of urban festivals

How frustrating would it be to turn up in Munich as Oktoberfest is being dismantled, or to see the performers at Bayreuth packing up for the season? Knowing the dates of Germany’s major events can help to avoid any frustration. For example, Munich’s Oktoberfest actually starts in mid-September. While Bayreuth’sfestival runs in July and August.
