There's more sunshine in the north of Germany than in the south
It's true! With an annual average of almost 970 litres of rain per square metre, Munich is in fact wetter than Hamburg (770 litres). And last summer, some northern weather stations saw new records. The Baltic coast had up to 360 hours of sunshine per month, compared to around 230 hours for the same period near the Alps. And our northern neighbour, Schleswig-Holstein, had the least rain of any state in Germany last summer.
