Here the climate table of a destination can not only provide a good overview, but also quite detailed information on the usual climate situation on site. However, it should be noted that climate tables mainly statistic mean values represent and therefore deviations are always possible.
Short-term changes, unusual weather phenomena and extreme situations are largely excluded. The climate table of the listed holiday destinations shows the averages, which were determined and recorded by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) over a period of at least 30 years.
