The climate of Berlin (Germany)
Berlin is the capital of Germany and has a troubled history, especially in the 20th century. Many remains dating back to this period can still be found. Berlin is a very trendy metropolis. When you walk through the streets you can admire its history. The most famous attraction is the Berlin Wall with former Checkpoint Charlie. Other historic sites are well worth visiting, too. You can visit old nuclear bunkers where people could seek shelter in case of an nuclear attack during the Cold War. The former Stasi headquarters and prison can be visited as well. If you want to learn all about the history of Berlin we recommend the museum ‘Story of Berlin’. Besides the historic sites from the 20th century many beautiful old buildings can be admired such as the Berliner Dom / Berlin Cathedral, Charlottenburg castle and the Brandenburger Tor / Brandenburg gate.
The city center is an oasis of peace and quiet. The Berliner/Berlin Zoo is a beautiful old zoo with many different species of animals. This large park is very suitable for a quiet afternoon. After the Berlin Wall fell many deteriorated suburbs developed and underwent renovation. Nice shops and trendy cafes can be found in Perenzlauerberg. Berlin is very suitable for a shopping trip. Besides trendy suburbs the large Kaufhaus des Westen is situated here. In the streets surrounding the Gedachtskirche and the Kürfurstendam many shops of the famous brands can be found. Berlin is a very versatile city. During WWII and the separation between east and west large parts were destroyed. Nowadays these spots boast fantastic modern architecture. The combination of young and daring next to old and historic make Berlin a very lively city.
Berlin has a moderate maritime climate. Because Berlin is located in the interior the climate has characteristics of a continental climate. especially when an easterly wind blows temperatures may rapidly drop or rise. In general extremes in temperatures are uncommon. The warm Gulf stream influences temperatures in such a way that there are distinct differences between summer and winter. The best time to visit Berlin is spring. During this period temperatures are rising, but it is not too hot yet. During the summer it may be very warm in Berlin. During fall precipitation figures are high.

Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
