The climate in Germany
Western Germany has a temperate oceanic climate. That means relatively cool summers (22 °C) and mild winters. The humid sea air means that a shower is never far away. Most precipitation falls in summer, but on the other hand, the sun always shines the most then too. East of the line Hamburg-Stuttgart is a transitional climate. The summers there are somewhat warmer, in Berlin it is 24 °C in August. In winter it can freeze severely in the east. Also in the Rhine Valley in summer it is pleasantly warm. Karlsruhe is one of the warmest spots in the country. Most precipitation falls on the hills and mountains of the Black Forest, the German Alps, the Eifel and Sauerland. In winter there are approximately 90 days of snow. There are plenty of winter sports.
