Best time to visit Dusseldorf
When is The Best Time to Visit Dusseldorf?
Dusseldorf's summer months are the best time to visit the city. From June to August the weather is warm and perfect for sightseeing although it is prone to frequent showers. It's also high season and the most expensive time to visit. Book your flights and accommodation a few months in advance to lock in prices before they skyrocket.
Spring is one of the best times to visit if you want to avoid the crowds of summer. From February to March, temperatures start to rise, and hotel rates haven't yet peaked. However, if you are on a budget avoid the two week Easter school break when prices skyrocket and the city is bustling with domestic travellers.

You'll have an easier time finding deals on airfare and accommodation with prices hitting rock bottom around January. Just make sure you bring enough warm clothes as winters in Germany are not for the faint of heart.
September to November is another affordable time to visit the city. As the city's summer crowds empty out, prices on airfare and hotel rooms start to drop. Just remember, you'll need warmer clothes and a raincoat for exploring the city and its surrounds.
