Weather in Munich

Munich, the capital of Bavaria, is the third largest city in Germany, located in the country's southern regions. From the geographical point of view, the capital city of Germany's largest state is in the center of Europe. From Munich, you can reach the Czech Republic, Austria and Switzerland in a matter of hours. The city lies in the area featuring warm summers and moderately cold winters. In general, average low temperatures are down to -5˚C (23˚F) while average highs rise up to 24˚C (75.2˚F). Still, the location of the city is susceptible to various opposing climatic influences. These tend to decrease or increase temperatures of air to a surprising extent.

The city of Munich is a year-round tourist destination, with many activities you can enjoy regardless of weather conditions. This destination features landmarks with striking architecture, expansive parks, outstanding museums and great festivals and other public events. Furthermore, nearby fairy-tale castles, commissioned by King Ludwig II, and historic sites, such as Hitler's Eagle's Nest near Obersalzberg, offer great day trips.

The capital of Bavaria features 4 distinct tourist seasons – the high season, the low season and two transitional (shoulder) seasons. The high tourist season lasts from June to August. Some other times of year when many tourists visit the city are around Christmas, New Year and Oktoberfest. Outside these times, winter (December to February) is the low season, while spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November) are shoulder seasons.

Low and shoulder seasons are ideal times for a visit to Munich, the capital city of Bavaria, for budget hunters. Not only tourist crowds are lesser and travel-related expenses lower, but the city receives a significantly lower amount of precipitation during these times. This is especially true for the low season, which is also the dry season here. Lower temperatures and gloomier weather are potential downsides of visiting the Bavarian capital during any of these times.

Transportation and accommodation rates are at their highest during the high (summer) season, and it is often necessary to make bookings well in advance. Furthermore, this period features most pleasant temperatures and the highest levels of precipitation.

Extreme Weather in Munich

Average weather conditions are moderate for the most part in this city in Southern Germany. But, opposing climatic influences coming from Eastern and Western Europe bring turbulent changes throughout the year. These are most obvious during wintertime. 

If harsh air masses from Russia reach the city in winter, daily highs may remain deeply below 0˚C/32˚F for long periods. On the other hand, warm and dry Föhn winds, blowing from the Alps in south, raise even daily lows high above freezing temperatures. These winds, however, are more common in autumn and less common in winter and spring. When Föhn winds reach the city, temperatures tend to increase to a great extent in a few hours.

Western influences bring higher temperatures from daily averages in winter. Yet, these changes aren't as dramatic as those brought by Föhn winds. When they reach the city, low temperatures remain around 0˚C/32˚F. On the other hand, these air masses lower temperatures in summer, making days cool.

Also, have in mind that lower temperatures, down to the point of freezing, may last until mid-May.
