When to Go

A year-round destination, Germany is particularly wonderful May through September for the long mild days that stretch sightseeing hours and are perfect for relaxing in beer gardens.

In the north, January can be dark, cold, and moody, with wind that cuts to the bone. Southern Germany, on the other hand, is a great winter destination, with world-class skiing, spas, and wellness options.
