With around 18 560 hours of sunshine in the past decade, Munich is the sunniest city in Germany. This was announced by the German Weather Service (DWD), confirming an earlier report by the ADAC. Baden-Württemberg capital Stuttgart is the second sunniest larger city in Germany and Hansestadt Rostock the third.
The Bavarian capital profits from its geographical location, especially in the summer when the southern part of Germany is influenced by high pressure fields over the Mediterranean, as meteorologist Simon Trippler explained for Focus.de. The sunniest place in Germany is Cap Arkona on the Rügen Island. Between 2005 and 2015, some 19 520 hours of sunshine were counted there.
