Geographical influences

Located in northeastern Germany, Berlin has a continental climate with four distinct seasons. Spring is usually mild with sunny intervals and light to moderate rainfall. The buildings create an insulating effect that helps to keep temperatures warm and pleasant throughout spring and summer. The city’s position inland means it’s a lot milder than the coastal regions with higher temperatures and humidity.


With an average temperature of 14°C, you can spend more time outdoors enjoying the sights and sounds of the city. Around midday, temperatures begin to increase to highs of 19°C before lowering to 8°C in the evening. May has an average rainfall of 55mm, which means there’s at least 14 rainy days. However, it’s less cloudy at this time of year and you’ll have nine hours of warm sunshine to enjoy per day.
