Like most of Germany, the region is characterised by a continental climate, with notable differences in temperature between the winter and summer periods. The warmest month is July when temperature peaks at around 25°C, while it is usually close to freezing around December and January, also with considerable precipitation. March and August tend to be the driest. Saarbrücken hosts several festivals throughout the year. Major winter events are the Christmas market starting at the end of November and the Max Ophüls Preis film festival in January, while in the summer tourists flock to the city for the popular Nauwieser Street Festival.

Passport / Visa

Germany can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by the citizens of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE, and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend that you contact the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travellers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. The citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.
