We are planning a trip to Munich, Salzburg, Vienna and Prague. We are trying to take into account the weather (would prefer not so cool) but were also wondering about when the leaves change colors in these areas. Does anyone know? Last year we were in Germany the first week of October and it was completely green.
Usually it is around end Sept/early October. But thanks to global warming last year we almost didn't have any kind of winter and leaves were green until December...
I was raised in Michigan where the color change in Autumn was my favorite time of year. I lived in Germany for six years in the 70's and 80's. While there were fall colors, I felt they seldom rivaled those of Michigan or, I assume, Minnesota. Perhaps it was the mix of trees.
On the other hand, the springs were spectacular in Germany with the mixes of spring greens, blooming trees and mustard fields.
