Best time to visit Nuremberg

The weather in Nuremberg is fairly temperate, any time of the year. Popular seasons to visit are spring (March - May) and autumn periods (October - November), when the weather is pleasant, with clear and warm days. The summers (June - September) on the other hand, offer warm temperatures, with the occasional disruption of showers and thunderstorms. You might enjoy visiting during this time, however, with music events like Open Air Classical and Rock in the Park. The winters (December - February), bring the chill, along with frost and snowfall.
