But first, how hot will it be?

Summer in Europe translates to a full house of tourists, bustling streets, and numerous festivals. Owing to the continent’s massive expanse, the degrees vary region-wise. For starters, Western European countries like Germany, France, Netherlands, the UK, Austria, and Switzerland experience temperatures between 14°C and 24°C from June to August. Countries in Eastern Europe, including Poland, Hungary, Croatia, and Greece, witness similar degrees of heat, with the highest temperature hovering around 25°C. Down south, the unsparing sun drives the heat to 30 °C, making the region relatively hotter. Northern Europe remains the coolest, with maximum temperatures clocking in at 22°C. So if you’re travelling to break free from the summer spell, consider the Northern countries like Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Greenland.
