Weather in Prague

Part of Prague's charm is that it is a rewarding place to visit at any time of year.

Spring (March to May) in Prague is pleasant as temperatures climb from 4°C (39°F) in March to 18°C (64°F) in May. May is also a month of celebrations – the prominent Prague Spring International Music Festival and the Czech Beer Festival draw large crowds.

Summer (June to August) in Prague is idyllic. The city bustles with tourists in July and August. Summer can be quite wet so pack an umbrella with you.

Autumn (September to November) is also a great time to visit Prague as the city experiences a low amount of rainfall. Average temperatures drop from 14°C (57°F) in September to 3°C (37°) in November.

Winter (December to February) is long and cold in Prague, but there are fewer tourists and the city's snow-dusted bridges and castles are at their most atmospheric. For a picture-perfect snow scene, visit Prague in December and January when you're most likely dusting of the white stuff.
