It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Zagreb

Peak Season: July to August

Summer travelers pack the streets for festivals like the giant Strossmarte, a season-long series of everything from the best mutt dog show to free films. Prices are high and lodging should be booked well in advance.

Off Season: November to March

Zagreb is cold and dark in winter, but the Dolac food market is open and during Zagreb Restaurant Week (late February to early March) restaurants offer three-course prix-fixe menus for less than $20.

Sweet Spot: April to June; September to October

Septemberfest is a lower-key version of Octoberfest and includes musical performances; in October, the Zagreb Film Festival brings 30,000 to the city. These more temperate fall and spring months are ideal for hiking the Medvednica mountain or taking the funicular to walk the historic Upper Town.
