When visiting a new city it’s often difficult to know what the weather and temperature will be like once you arrive.
So, before you head off on your Prague city break just take a while to consider when will be the best time to visit [bearing in mind that the summer months will not only be the hottest, but normally the most expensive].
On the whole, winters can be bitterly cold and summers are normally hot. The best months to visit Prague are May to June and then September to October inclusive. However, don’t dismiss the winter months as, although they are cold, this is when you will benefit from the height of the opera and concert season – but remember to pack some suitable footwear for snowy conditions.
The following are average maximum temperature in degrees you can expect for each month.
January : -1C or 30F
February : 0C or 32F
March : 4C or 39F
April : 9C or 48F
May : 14C or 57F
June : 17C or 63F
July : 19C or 66F
August : 18C or 65F
September : 14C or 57F
October : 9C or 48F
November : 4C or 39F
December : 0C or 32F
Spring is a lovely time to go on a Prague break when you will be able to see the fruit trees in full bloom. If you don’t like crowds it’s best to avoid the main summer months when the city can also be a little oppressive. Autumn may be a better time for you to visit when the main tourist season has finished and the days are still warm.
If Christmas markets are of interest to you, then December will be ideal when you will be able to take advantage of the famous Prague Christmas Market and take some great souvenirs, and presents home as a reminder of your trip.
