Best times to travel

June, September, October, late November, December

Sure, you can beat the crowds in relatively moderate weather by visiting in June or October, but when I think of Germany, I think of beer festivals and Christmas markets! Oktoberfest (despite its name) is a festival that begins in September, so plan to be in Munich for a stein of the famous Bavarian beer in early fall. Prost! Experience the magic of Germany at Christmastime by visiting in late November or December to explore the country’s famous Christmas markets for lebkuchen paired with a mug of glühwein. 


About Germany

Fairytale villages, stunning nature, awe-inspiring architecture, delicious food– Germany has it all. Of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the historical aspect of Germany. Understanding history is the best way to avoid repeating it, and I believe it’s important for all travelers to visit WWII sites in Berlin and across the country to learn about the past and work toward a better future.
