Germany in Spring - What to Expect:
Planning to travel to Germany in spring? Spring is a wonderful time to visit Germany; after a long winter, the country sheds its layers and welcomes the beginning of the warm season with traditional Easter celebrations and spring festivals.
Here’s what to except from the spring season (March – May) in Germany, from weather, and airfares, to festivals, and events in Germany.
Airfares and Hotel Rates in Spring:
With rising spring temperatures, you’ll also see prices for airfares and hotels climb, even if they are still lower than in the peak time of summer.
In March, you can still get some great deals on flights and hotels, but come April, prices (and crowds) are on the up. During Easter, German schools are closed for spring break (usually two weeks around Easter weekend, and many Germans like to travel during these days. Hotels, museums, and trains might be crowded, so make your reservations early.
Germany in Spring - Weather:
As soon as those first rays of sun come out (even if it’s still chilly), you'll see many people in Germany's gardens, parks and outdoor cafes, soaking up the sun and enjoying the eagerly anticipated beginning of the warm season.
As any time of year, the weather in Germany can be unpredictable, and sometimes, spring seems to arrive hesitantly: It can still snow in March, and the weather in April may change from sun to rain or hail showers in a couple of hours. So bring those layers and pack some wet weather gear.Packing List for Germany
