Tips Hamburg
When to Go There isn't really a single time of year that is better than any other to visit Hamburg, because it can be chilly year round. While Germany can have pleasant summer weather, northern areas are known for their year-round Reizklima, or 'healthy, bracing climate'. Summer temperatures don't creep much over 20°C (68°F). Winter is prime ski time if you want to head south for the alps of the Harz Mountains.
Climate Hamburg enjoys a milder climate than the interiors of Germany, mostly because of its proximity to the sea. The cool sea breeze makes sure that it s pollution levels remain low and so the air is relatively clean. It can rain anytime of the year and there is no specific season, though it is wettest in July and August and driest in February.
