What weather to expect in Schleswig-Holstein

Schleswig-Holstein is part of Germany. Germany is quite a large country, so the climate is diverse. Generally the climate of Germany is temperate, it is marine in the north. You can expect cool, sometimes cloudy and wet winters, and mild summers. You would probably expect a warmer climate in the south, but don't forget the Alps, which prevent much of the warmer Mediterranean air to blow up into southern Germany. Weather in Alps is usually colder than in lowlands, of course. And it is often very cold at the peaks.

When speaking about the usual weather in this area, the information is relevant for example for these popular places: Amrum, Bad Segeberg, Fehmarn, Flensburg, Föhr, Grömitz, Heligoland, Holstein Switzerland, Itzehoe, Kiel, Lübeck, Neumünster, North Frisian Islands, Pellworm, Plön, Rendsburg, Sankt Peter Ording, Sylt, Travemünde, Wedel.
