    Overall Lübeck Travel Experience by Season

    Spring (March through May)

    Humidity and temperatures combine to make this season feel moderately cold. Highs range from 64.3°F (17.9°C) and 42.9°F (6.1°C) with warmer temperatures in the later months. Spring is slow/unreported for tourism, which makes it a good time for those looking for deals.

    Summer (June through August)

    The middle-year months have very comfortable weather with high temperatures that are comfortable. June – August is slow/unreported season for tourism in Lübeck, so lodging and other accommodations may cost as much as usual.

    Fall (September through November)

    Fall daily highs range from 68.6°F (20.3°C) and 40.1°F (4.5°C), which will feel chilly given the humidity and wind. Tourism is slow/unreported during these months due to the weather, so hotels may be normally priced.

    Winter (December through February)

    Weather is far too cold this time of year in Lübeck to be enjoyable for warm weather travelers. The average high during this season is between 51°F (10.6°C) and 33.4°F (0.8°C). These times of year are slow/unreported with tourists.
