Any time is a good time to be anywhere in Germany, but when is the best time to holiday pretty much depends on what type of holiday you foresee. Given Germany’s northerly position (it is closer to the Arctic Circle than to the Equator), temperatures are astonishingly modest. Low-lying regions are not prone to unrelenting periods of tremendously hot or cold weather. Humid westerly winds pressure temperatures which rise into the mid-20°C range in the summer before falling to near-freezing levels in the winter. Rainfall is reliable all through the year, with vaguely more rainfall during the warmest, summer months.
Marine weather patterns triumph around the Baltic Sea. Here, the summers are logically warm while the colder temperatures in winter are accompanied by heavy cloud envelop. The weather patterns amend faintly inland, where a more acutely-marked change of seasons (typical of continental climates) is noted. Of course, the higher height in the southern Alpine region of Germany is noticeably cooler year-round. Summers are cool and winters see subzero temperatures accompanied by significant snowfall. Ski resorts in this part of the country have plenty snow during winter months, despite the fact that most cannot remain in operation during the summer when temperatures rise enough to thwart amassing.
