Best Times to Visit Berlin

The best time to visit Berlin is May through September, when the weather is ideal for cafe sitting, park lazing and leisurely city strolling. Winter, on the other hand, is freezing: Temperatures tend to range from 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit. However, this might be the best time for budget travelers to score deals on airfare and hotel rates.

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center

May-September

Average highs peak in the mid-70s Fahrenheit during this time of year, making the months between May and September ideal for outdoor pastimes. Sipping German brew in a biergarten along the River Spree, picnicking in the Tiergarten and lingering in a West Berlin cafe are just a few of the activities you can join the locals in during this temperate season. Accommodations book up quickly, so make your reservation well in advance.

Key Events:

October-December

Plummeting temperatures that range from the 30s to the 50s make this an overlooked time of year. But if you book early, you may be able to find some deals.

Key Events:

January-April

Berlin is bone-chilling in the winter, and the city's slate gray skies don't do much to warm spirits. Still, you might be able to save some significant money by booking in the winter – just don't forget a warm coat.
