Things To Remember
The best time to visit Germany is during the spring or fall months, specifically May or October. The spring is often met with moderate temperatures, and rain showers, but fewer crowds.
Fall welcomes the cool down from the summer and begins the changing of the leaves.
Summer and locals rejoice as the weather finally warms up, and the sunshine arrives. Light clothing and expect large crowds if you visit during the summer months.
The famous Christmas Markets begin at the end of November through the New Year! If you can go ,it is magical.
