Hamburg in detail

When to go and weather

  • Summer (June to August) The busiest time, and the city has a real spring in its step; book ahead for most things.
  • Autumn (September to November) Can be lovely, but cold.
  • Winter (December to February) The cold means it's the quietest time to visit.
  • Spring (March to May) Similar to autumn, chilly but sometimes delightful.
