Average monthly hours of sunshine Germany until April 2020

In April 2020, Germany experienced an overall average of 294 sunshine hours. Sunshine hours are also referred to as sunshine duration and as obvious from this graph, the amount that Germany receives differs by season, even quite starkly just by month.

Sunniest states

When looking at areas, or more concretely Federal States in Germany, the sunniest states were Baden-Wuerttemberg, Saarland and Rhineland Palatinate (common knowledge among the population). Confirming popular opinion, Hamburg was indeed the state with the least sunshine hours in recent years. In winter, based on recent figures, Germany counted 315 sunshine hours.

National weather service

The German National Meteorological Service (Deutscher Wetterdienst or DWD) monitors the weather in Germany. The service is a federal authority providing information for the population and conducting scientific research. It’s also responsible for issuing official warnings when weather conditions are predicted to be threatening.
