As each different destination has an ideal season in which to visit, there is no single perfect travel time for the whole of Germany – each place has its own special charm in each season. For a holiday on the beach, for example, the summer months between June and August are recommended, as it’s this time of the year that offers the most hours of sunshine. It’s also at this time that the warmest temperatures are to be expected, at an average of 17 °C. For the ski resorts in the south of the Federal Republic, the winter months are, of course, the best choice. As a general rule of thumb, Northern Germany is typically cooler than the south, with temperatures in the entire federal territory rarely going into extremes due to the temperate climate. Thus, holidaymakers are spared the searing heat and the freezing cold.
Many popular German sights, some of which have even been nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage sites, leave the same lasting impression whether they’re seen in the snow or the sun, and can be admired in any season. These attractions include, for example, Cologne Cathedral and Lorelei on the Rhine River, both of which can be reached easily from Cologne Bonn Airport (CGN). Other UNESCO World Heritage sites include The Cistercian Maulbronn Monastery, between Karlsruhe and Stuttgart, The Speicherstadt in Hamburg and the old town in the Bavarian village of Regensburg.

Each of the 16 federal states has its own culture and tradition. While the Rhinelanders around Cologne and Düsseldorf value their carnival, the Rhine and the beer, around Munich and Southern Bavaria it is the Alps and Oktoberfest. The world-famous Nuremberg Christmas Market is also a high point here, and from Nuremberg Airport (NUE), you can reach it in just a few minutes by car. In the far north, the Hanseatic cities of Bremen, Hamburg, Rostock and many others meet with their maritime culture. Among the most popular destinations in Germany, however, it’s Berlin that makes it to the top of most lists. Finally, the federal capital reflects what is found all over the country: a wide variety of living history, unique natural spaces and a modern city culture.
If you are planning a shopping trip, the famous Königsallee in Düsseldorf or the almost endless shopping opportunities of Leipzig are a must-see. A touch of New York City-style with impressive skyscrapers and the most modern architecture can be admired in Frankfurt am Main. Tourists interested in the country’s history can visit the famous Dresden Frauenkirche and experience German history from the Middle Ages to the German Democratic Republic era. Hannover, Erfurt in central Thuringia, or Paderborn in the west also offer an infinite variety of historical sites. In the Ruhr area, also known as “Ruhrpott”, the history of mining, characteristic of the unique city architecture in the neighbouring cities, such as Dortmund, is unmistakable.
Germany’s most famous waters are Lake Constance. This unique natural scenery is lined with baroque towns, such as Friedrichshafen. Visitors who travel through Münster Osnabrück International Airport (FMO), on the border between North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony are also spoiled for choice. Both federal states have cultural treasures, modern metropolises and natural landscapes, which make for an all-round successful holiday. If you want to go a little bit smaller, you can start in Saarland, which is one of the smallest federal states in Germany. Fans of culture and entertainment will surely be delighted by the numerous theatres and monuments in Saarbrücken (SCN).
