A guide to the Munich weather - the city through the seasons

Munich’s warmest months are June and July with average daily high of 22C or 73F.
But it often reaches 30 or 35C (95F) and the humidity can make it feel like a sauna.
Keep in mind these are also the wettest months, with an average rainfall of 12cm (5 inches) a day, often delivered in thunderstorm form.
Best not forget the umbrella!
The days draw shorter in Autumn (Herbst).
A cool breezes starts to blow and people start going home straight from work rather than hanging about outdoors.
Foliage explodes into dazzling hues of yellow, orange and red before finally shedding it all onto the footpaths to be dutifully swept away by anonymous little men and six o’clock in the morning.
November seems to be the least-loved month as it’s usually cold and grey with nothing interesting going on.
December brings the chance of snow and the guarantee of being able to huddle at an outdoor Christmas market with a hot cup of hot, spicy wine (Glühwein).

SUNNY: The weather can be so
nice at the Oktoberfest
it's much nicer to be outdoors
