September is a good month to visit Germany

The months of September as well as October are perfect for a Germany trip. Here is why:

  • The larger tourist groups are gone and kids are back to school.
  • Yet the Fall season has lots to offer in Germany: Oftentimes the late Summers can be warm and golden with vineyards ready to harvest their grapes. Winefests, Oktoberfest and other smaller villagefests are everywhere during this time of year.
  • While it is hard to book that perfect apartment on short notice during the busy summer season, we now can offer you more choices as the late Summer and Fall seasons approach. Prices go down (depending on location) as well, and when we talk prices we mean AIRLINE prices too. Overall it should be a lot more feasible to afford that trip to Europe in the "not so high" seasons that still have so many beautiful things to offer in Germany.
  • As mentioned above Oktoberfest gets into full swing by Mid September to Oktober but don't forget those smaller village festivals as well...they are often times less stressful, less crowded and a lot of fun as well (esp. when you look at the rent of an apartment in Munich (Munich vacation rentals | Munich travel guide) during Oktoberfest).
  • HIking in Bavaria while the leaves turn and the cows are coming down from their summer meadows, walking on a beach up in Northern Germany or enjoying a boat ride on one of Germany's oldest and most beautiful rivers along castles...there is lots more to do in Germany during September and October.
