Climate and Weather

Berlin has a continental climate, with cold winters and often quite hot summers. The coldest months are December, January, and February, when mean temperatures of −0.4 to 1.2°C (31.3 to 34.2°F) and freezing temperatures can continue for many weeks. The warmest months are June, July, and August, with mean temperatures of 16.7 to 17.9°C (62.1 to 64.2°F) and during particularly hot periods temperatures can exceed 30°C.

Apart from the odd very cold or very hot day Berlin is not usually subject to extreme weather. This may disappoint those of a survivalist bent, but for everyone else an umbrella is the only advisable protective accessory.
