Summer is the best moment of the year to visit Germany even if the south of the country can get quite warm. Spring and fall are also indicated as the weather is generally comfortable and dry. Winter however, except for the ski and snowboard enthusiasts, is not the best time to visit. Cold and snowy or extremely humid, foggy and wet, winter is not the best time to appreciate this country! Berlin for instance, enjoys a typical continental climate with dry, cool winters and hot, stormy summers with record rainfalls.

WHAT TO DO:

The capital Berlin, symbolizes well the whole of Germany. This vibrant, active metropolis offers museums and treasures of all kinds. Another must see during your stay in Germany, is Munich. Culturally diverse, filled with countless cafés, Munich is also home to an impressive range of museums celebrating a variety of artistic and technical wonders. Outside Munich, take time to pause and visit the concentration camp of Dachau. This will surely be a very emotionally charged and memorable highlight of your stay in this country.

WHAT TO SEE:

All of Bavaria is also worth seeing: Oberammergau and its painted houses, the spectacular castles of Hohenschwangau, Neuschwanstein and Linderhof, the medieval city of Nuremberg and its museum, home of countless wonders. If you want to bring back a meaningful souvenir from your trip, pick up some porcelain from Saxony, silk scarves, beer mugs or cuckoo clocks from the Black Forest or, walk away in a pair of comfortable, world-famous Birkenstocke shoes!

THINGS TO DO:

A top 10 list of things to do while in Germany : The flea markets…Like being a kid in a candy store! Experience the Berlin Film Festival. Take in the festive atmosphere of the Oktoberfest.
