Our verdict

The best time to visit Germany is September

Germany is a place lots of people visit almost all year round, but if you’re looking for the best time to go, September is definitely the time you should visit. This is based on a number of factors such as the weather, cost of flights and accommodation, peak travel periods and more.

The warmest month of the year in Berlin, one of the most popular travel destinations in Germany, is July, where the average maximum temperature gets to around 25℃ (77℉). Temperatures can reach as high as 28℃ (83℉) on the hottest days in summer. The temperature at night in the winter can drop to as low as -8℃ (18℉), although this can differ at other destinations across Germany depending on the geography.
