When is the Best Time to Visit Poland?
Depending on the nature of your trip, the best time to visit Poland will be either the summer months of June-August, or the Autumn months of September and October.
The summer months are the best time to visit Poland if you plan on spending plenty of time outdoors sightseeing and enjoying outdoor activities like hiking and biking, as the weather during this time will be hot and dry; however, this is also the peak season for tourists, so you may want to plan your trip accordingly.
For those who want to avoid the crowds, the autumn season of September-October is the best time to visit Poland, as you will encounter far fewer tourists. Weather during this time will be slightly cooler, but still warm enough to spend time outdoors, meaning this is a great time to visit and experience some of the attractions that would be very busy during the summer months.
