Best time to take a vacation to Munich
Munich is a wet city, with about half of all days seeing significant amounts of precipitation. This moisture leads to humid summers and snowy winters. Thankfully the temperatures during the summer months are not uncomfortably hot, with the average high reaching only 73 degrees Fahrenheit during July and August. The average high temperature during Oktoberfest is around 59 degrees. If you plan to visit during the festival, book your travel on Orbitz.com well in advance. Make sure you pack warm clothing to wear regardless of when you visit, due to Munich's chilly nights.
