If you want to avoid the crowds, the best time to visit would be between April-June and mid-October-November. Germany is famous for its Oktoberfest festival and Christmas markets, so even during the colder months it can still be very busy.
As we mentioned above, Oktoberfest is held from mid-September through to mid-October and attracts around 6 million visitors every year. If you’re a fan of traditions German beer and food, or just looking for a great atmosphere, we recommend coming over during this festival.
The whole month of December in the build up to Christmas is generally quite busy, as the Germans are famed for their magical Christmas markets. The decorations and lights combine with traditional German architecture to create some truly fairy tale-inspired scenes.
