Season Highlights

The summer months are ideal for exploring the city and its surroundings as the weather is usually reasonably warm and pleasant. It doesn’t get dark until at least 9pm so all the more time to spend out of doors. Soak up the festival atmosphere, relax with a cool drink in one of the city’s beer gardens or dine al fresco.
