Munich climate

The weather in Munich is consistent with a continental climate, strongly modified by the proximity of the Alps, which can make Munich’s weather unpredictable. In general summers are fairly warm and very wet, characterised by sunny weather interspersed by dramatic thunderstorms, while winters are cold with light snowfalls. The Alps cause two unique aberrations in Munich weather: southwesterly winds crossing the Alps can bring warm Föhn conditions during any season on a few days a year, pushing up temperatures markedly even in winter; and northwesterly winds from the mountains bring unseasonably low temperatures, rain and even snow on odd days, mostly in spring and summer. Visitors can easily end up experiencing quite a variety of weather on a stay in Munich.

The most popular time to visit is in September, for Oktoberfest, but summer (June to August) is the peak tourism season. Munich is really a year-round holiday destination because so many of the city’s attractions can be enjoyed regardless of the weather. Visitors flock to the city in winter to enjoy skiing and snowboarding in the Bavarian Alps.

Munich main attractions

Munich offers a lot of sights, the most well-known include: Marienplatz, Viktualienmarkt, Englischer Garten, Munich Residenz, Hofbräuhaus, Olympiapark, the Allianz Arena and some more.

The Munich Oktoberfest is just an experience you need to have once in your life. A huge tent area, where it’s all about party party party, is joined by an immense fun fair area and makes the festival to the largest and of course most original one of it’s kind in the world.
