When to visit Leipzig

The best time to explore the multi-faceted Leipzig is during the warm months between May and September. These months not only provide pleasant weather conditions but also come with the added zest of local festivals, open-air concerts, and beer gardens coming alive in full swing. While July is generally the warmest month, it also tends to attract light summer showers. However, these do not commonly hamper sightseeing plans and the city looks even more refreshed and vibrant after the rains.

For those looking for less crowded streets and discounted hotel prices, February is the ideal month.
