Best time to visit Hamburg, Germany?

  • The best time to go to Hamburg is in the mid spring when there are fewer tourists and hotels are more affordable. During this time, expect to pay approximately $95/night for a hotel room. That's $10 cheaper than what you would have paid in May. Temperatures hover in the high 40s, a little colder than the average 60°F you would experience during high season.
  • Most tourists travel to Hamburg in the late spring, so expect higher hotel and rental prices. If you're on a budget, try avoiding the Silvester week (December 23rd to January 2nd) and the Marathon week (April 26th - 30th) since accommodation rates peak the most during these times.
  • In Hamburg, it rains most days in May - July, so make sure to bring an umbrella if you decide to visit during that time.
