Weather and the best time to visit Bavaria
Bavaria is a great place to visit whatever the season but maybe the very best time to see all the wonders the state has to offer is in the summer months of July to September. In winter the foothills and mountains of Bavaria are snow-covered from December through to February and sometimes even well into April on some of the higher slopes. Spring has a charm all of its very own when the landscape bursts into bloom after its cold winter sleep whilst autumn is the season when all is awash with gold. Away from the hustle and bustle of the high season months is a good time to enjoy the towns and countryside of Bavaria in peace and quiet.
Germany has four very clearly defined seasons with warm summers and cold winters. Average temperatures in summer are in the region of 25-30°C (highest temperatures in July), whilst in winter the average is around 0 to –5°C (lowest temperatures in January). The warmest month is usually July whilst the coldest is mainly January. The mercury drops below zero on approximately 100 days in the year whilst annually the state enjoys some 1600 to 1900 hours of sunshine. Every month has its share of precipitation on an average of 14 days per month.
