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 Rhineland

Peak Season: June to October

The Rhine Valley’s mild Indian summer can last through October, and the outdoor harvest festivals and late-summer fireworks displays make this the best (albeit most crowded and most expensive) time to visit.

Off Season: November to March

Winters here are more temperate than in other parts of Germany, but temperatures tend to drop below freezing and stay there. Christmas festivals (not to mention lower hotel prices) can make visiting in winter worthwhile.

Sweet Spot: March to May

Spring is a lovely time to visit the Rhineland. Though it comes late, the change from gray to green seems to occur in more than just the trees and vines; everyone’s in a good mood, especially value-conscious tourists who can score good deals on hotels and airfare during this time.
