Climate

☂ Almost every season is suitable for a trip to Munich. However, in summer temperatures can differ quite strongly - from about 12 to 30° C (it also can be a bit rainy in July and August). So be careful, while planning your visit during this time period. Better check your favourite weather forecast a few days before going on vacation.

❅ In winter the weather doesn't change so drastically - temperatures stay within the limits of 0° C to a maximum of -10° C. Winter sport fans can doubtlessly enjoy alpine snow-covered landscapes and try out various seasonal activities.

☀ From March to May and from October to the beginning of November, there is often a very friendly weather in and around Munich.

Built in the 19th century for the mysterious ‘Mad King’, Ludwig II of Bavaria, the Neuschwanstein Castle was supposed to be his dream palace, where he could escape to and live a more private life (but, unfortunately, he never saw it completed). Rooms Inspired by Wagner’s operas, a mural of St George slaying the dragon in the Throne Room, the dining room, which was equipped with an electric bell system (far ahead of its time), the 'first-generation' telephone, magnificent ceiling paintings and so much more will impress you in the Neuschwanstein Castle.
