When should I visit Munich?
The city is beautiful and full of life at any time of year. The festive spirit over Christmas is well worth wrapping up warm; if you don't mind risking the chance of rain, the summer temperatures are lovely; for the best chance of sunshine, head there during spring, and if you're not bothered about the weather and just want to experience Oktoberfest, book for autumn!
