Weather in Munich

Sitting at an altitude of 520m (1,706 ft) and being relatively close to the Alps, Munich receives about 1,000mm (39 inches) of annual precipitation on the average. In comparison, Hamburg in the north has about 760mm (30 inches) of annual precipitation on the average while Berlin is even drier.

Spring (March to May) brings rain. March sees an average high temperature of 8°C (46°F) and 65mm (2.6 inches) of precipitation. April is warmer albeit rainy – this is when the city celebrates the much acclaimed Long Night of Music (Die Lange Nacht der Musik) where stages are set up across the city from bars to churches with stars performing anything from classical to rock. This is the best time to go for music lovers.

Summer (June to August) receives more rain than other seasons so pack a raincoat with you. 24°C (76°F) is the average high in July and August.

Autumn (September to November) is pleasant. The city is aswarm with visitors during Oktoberfest which starts from late September through to early October. If a mammoth beer marathon takes your fancy and you’re lucky to get flight tickets, pack a sweater with you as alcohol actually lowers your core body temperature (despite you may feel warmer). 19°C (66°F) is the average high in September.

Winter (December to February) is a popular season in Munich thanks mainly to its elaborate Christingle celebrations and its close proximity to many good ski resorts in the mountains beyond. In December, the average high is 3°C (37°F) while the average low is 0°C (32°F).

Mercure Hotel München Altstadt

This formulaic chain hotel in Munich, located between the Marienplatz and Stachus squares, is an affordable option right in the heart of the Old Town. The 80 standard rooms provide simple accommodation but are comfortable, clean and secure. The Mercure Alstadt offers Wi-Fi access, covered parking (a rarity in central Munich) and basic catering, within a short walking distance of all the historic attractions of the city centre.

Fleming's Hotel Munich-City

Part of the Fleming’s chain of accommodation and restaurants, Hotel Munich-City is centrally located, just a short walk from the Hauptbahnhof. Its contemporary flair is pared down with straight-lined furniture, while its 112 rooms come with glass cube bathrooms. The restaurant downstairs gives the diner décor a French brassiere twist, and its spa and fitness area boasts a Finnish sauna and aroma steam bath.

Creatif Hotel Elephant

Like someone knocked an array of paint pots over, this cream-walled hotel goes crazy with the bright colours elsewhere, but it works wonderfully. Rooms are basic, but all have ensuites and TVs, and each is dotted with retro furniture. You can’t miss the place from the outside as it’s sprayed with countless colours. Breakfast is included.

Motel One Munich-City-West

Located in the western part of Munich, but with good connections to the Old Town, Motel One Munich-City-West brands itself as a ‘boutique mote’, offering functional contemporary and stylish surroundings at budget prices. Rooms are compact but modern in design, and services such as Wi-Fi internet access are available, while drinks and snacks are on offer 24 hours.

Eurostars Book Hotel

Bookworms will find much to write home about at Eurostars Book Hotel, which dedicates each of its floors to a different literary genre. So whether you’re wandering the corridors with Don Quixote or bunking up with Anna Karenina, its 201 rooms have plenty space for tucking into a good read. Modern and stylish, the hotel doesn’t have the grandiose beauty of a Jane Austen manor, plumping instead for saunas, a lobby-bar, a business centre, meeting rooms for events, free Wi-Fi and small gym.

Hotel Olympic

This unusual hotel is popular with actors and media types - partly because of its trendy, central location near Gärtnerplatz and partly because of the combination of English colonial style and traditional Bavarian architecture. Its 32 rooms are tastefully furnished and follow a unique design scheme throughout. Definitely a hotspot to be seen at in Munich, yet still kept a secret from all but the in-crowd.
