Weather InformationBerlin experiences four seasons, with an average annual temperature of about 48 degrees. Winters tend to be chilly with temperatures averaging a high of 37 degrees in December. Summers are typically clear and warm, with an average high of 73 degrees in July. Spring and fall can bring pleasant weather, with average highs of 55 degrees in April and October. About one quarter of the city's precipitation comes in the form of snow, and rain is possible any time of the year.
Crowd InformationSince Berlin covers such a large area, dense crowds are rarely an issue. However, more people may visit during certain festivals, including the Berlinale in February, the Carnival of Cultures in May and June, the Love Parade in July, the Berlin Marathon in September, and New Year's Eve.
Closure InformationHotels remain open throughout the year. While many museums will close on Mondays, and shops will close for holidays such as Easter, Pentecost (50 days after Easter), and New Year's Day.
When to SaveAlthough prices remain fairly steady throughout the year, hotels are the least expensive during the low season, and prices tend to rise during major events, marathons, and conventions.
When to BookLast-minute airfare is available throughout the year, but it's wise to book several months in advance if planning a visit during a major festival.
