Weather Tips (9)

Warm but unpredictable in Summer, cold in Winter

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Munich has a continental climate. However, because the city is located near the Alps, it is likely to rain often. Thunderstorms also often seem to appear out of the blue. Make sure you take your umbrella as well as long sleeved shirt and trousers in summer - just in case.

The range of temperatures between day and night or summer and winter can also be huge. A warm downwind from the Alps (Föhn) can change the temperatures completely within a matter of hours, even in the winter (December - March). Munich experiences very chilly winters, although heavy rainfall is very rare in the winter. The coldest it gets is on average -2°C, January being the coldest month of the year. It’s fairly warm all the way through from May until August, with average temperature of 19° C (65) in July, which is the hottest month.

Bring an umbrella for sure

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Don't forget to pack an umbrella or a poncho or whatever you choose to protect you from the rain, which can be frequent in Munich.

Photo Equipment There are so many wonderful photo opportunities here. Bring all your photo gear.

Dress for the season

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Being a long way inland, Munich has "continental" weather. In other words, it's freezing cold in the winter (warm coat, scarf, gloves, wooly hat) and also snows heavily (warm boots, thick socks); it rains heavily in the spring (umbrella); it's very hot in the summer.

Miscellaneous Standard European plug adaptor required, the one with two cylindrical prongs.

Generel info

Luggage and bags A suitcase big enough to fit stuff, but small enough to haul yourself. One suitcase and one carry on is enough for anyone.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Ladies, wear flats. Cobblestone streets and heels are no fun, trust me as a woman myself. Like most European cities, you do a lot of walking in Munich.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies Take what you need just so you don't waste time hunting down what you need in a foreign city. Everything you need is accessable, but keep in mind everything is closed on Sunday.

Photo Equipment Expensive everywhere you go, bring your own, but develop pictures if you can. Hightened airport security X-Ray machines damages film, happened to me. If you don't want to develop fil over there, but all used film in a carry on, not luggage, or you will lose the pictures, 100%

Miscellaneous It stays cold in Europe until the last week of June. Snows in the winter. Hot in the summer.

Munich and its weather

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear For Munich you should bring posh clothes with you if you want to go out there. The "Schickeria" in Munich has the reputation to be really dressed up and if you wear the wrong clothes it's possible that they won't let you in the club.
But of course there are also a few locations where you can go to in casual clothes.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear Munich is close to the Alps. So if you plan to go skiing, don't forget warm clothes.

Miscellaneous The German weather is always good for surprises. It can be very cold and rainy in the summertime but it's also possible that you can wear t-shirt and shorts in April or May. So don't forget your umbrella and at least one warm pullover and one pair of long trousers (or buy it in Germany in case you need it).
Munich weather in summer usually can be very hot and very cold in winter so don't forget clothes for this kind of weather.
