Autumn is a beautiful season in Germany and traveling to Germany in fall will give you a good opportunity to experience German culture. There are lots of fall festivals in Germany that you can attend during your visit. And while fall might be sometimes not the best time to visit Germany weather-wise, it is definitely one of the best times to experience German traditions. Germany has 4 distinct seasons and every season is different in terms of weather. There is probably no best time to visit Germany that will fit everyone. The best time to travel to Germany for you will depend a lot on the activities you want to do and whether they are they dependent on the weather.
December is one of the best months of the year to visit Germany. Yes, it is cold. But there are Christmas markets in every city, town and even small villages and the atmosphere is just magical. Two years ago I was lucky to attend my first Christmas market in Germany. I need to admit that after seeing many other Christmas markets after that, it doesn’t feel so special anymore. But there is something that makes me go to the Christmas market again and again. As you probably guessed from the title, it is food and drinks.
Flixbus is the biggest company offering long-distance bus service all over Germany and is rapidly expanding its network in Europe. Unlike Deutsche Bahn, Flixbus offers affordable tickets and is therefore especially attractive to young people.
Over the past year, I had a love-hate relationship with Flixbus. At first, I was really happy to find such a cheap way to travel in Germany and small problems didn’t seem to bother me much. The more I traveled with Flixbus, the more disadvantages I started to notice. At one point I was so disappointed with their service that I said I would never use them again. After a while I started traveling with Flixbus in Germany again, but only when it fits my travel plans the best. Here is some information I wish I knew before I started traveling in Germany with Flixbus.
