Frankfurt Climate & Weather
Frankfurt Climate and Weather
Frankfurt has a temperate continental climate, characterised by warm summers with occasional wet days, and cold winters. Temperatures are not extreme and almost never severe. Summers are sunny and warm but can also be quite wet with frequent rain and sometimes quite high humidity. Winters are fairly cold and can bring occasional violent storms; light snowfall is to be expected and it can get windy in winter which adds to the chill factor. The average temperature in mid-winter (January) is 34.5 °F (1.4 °C), and in mid-summer (July) the average temperature is 66.7 °F (19.3 °C).
Although summer is definitely the best time to visit Frankfurt it is also the most popular time and it can get busy, crowded and expensive, with a lot of festivals, trade shows and conferences clogging up the city. If you would like to visit Frankfurt outside of this period, and avoid some of the irritations of peak tourist season, you can get pleasant weather and plenty of sunshine in spring (April and May) and autumn (September and October).
