Climate and the Best Time to Travel

The climate in Hamburg is influenced by its proximity to the coast and maritime influences. Due to the prevailing westerly winds, it is not so cold in winter and a bit colder in summer than in other areas of the country.

The best time to travel is a matter of taste, it depends much upon what weather you like. Please note the following:

• May, June, November, and December are typical rainy months.
• July and August are usually the warmest months.
• July, August, and September are the best months to swim.
• The end of August and the beginning of September are not so warm, yet leaves on trees are still green. So you can ride a bike or visit an outdoor swimming pool. There is always something happening in the city.
