The Weather in Berlin in October

Updated: September 13, 2023

October finds the temperatures falling fairly rapidly in Germany's Capital City with mostly cloudy skies and fairly frequent rainy days.

However, there are still nice days here, especially early in the month.

As a retired meteorologist turned tour guide, I didn't expect that I would use my experience as a forecaster in my new career in tourism.

But here I am, finding myself answering more weather questions as a blogger than I ever did as a weatherman.

So, here are answers to some frequently asked questions about the weather in Berlin in October.


Daytime high temperatures will tend to be around 15-17 C (59-63 F) early in October, falling to 11-12 C (51-54 F) near the end of this month.

A few of the warmer afternoons, especially early in the month, can reach up near 22 C (72 F).

The record high temperature in Berlin during October is 27.5 C (81.5 F). 

Late night and early morning lows should average around 7-9 C (45-48 F) early in the month but are more likely to be near 4.5 C (39-41 F) near the end of the month.

About 3 of the colder mornings, especially late in the month, will dip down to 0 C (32 F) or less. 

The record low temperature recorded in Berlin during October is -9.6 C (14.7 F).


During October, the number of sunny days decreases to about 9-10 days with 2-3 days being partly sunny and 18-20 days mostly cloudy.

A sunny day is more likely early in the month vs. later in the month.

Some rain falls on about 15-17 days, however, only 6-7 days record 1 mm (0.04 inches) or more. 


The number of daylight hours decreases rapidly this month from about 11.6 hours on the 1st to about 9.6 hours by the 31st.


The wind tends to be mostly gentle at 6-19 kph (4-12 mph) but frequently will be moderate at 20-28 kph (13-18 mph).


Autumn in Berlin is chilly so fall attire works best.

This can include long-sleeved shirts, some jeans, denim jackets, warm pullovers, and a light to medium-weight coat or jacket. 

Don’t forget a couple of pairs of good walking shoes and at least one umbrella for those rainy days.
