Spain is the most popular flight destination among the Dutch. It is mainly the mild climate that makes people go to Spain on holiday in large numbers. Over the years, people have discovered that Spain has more to offer than sun, sea and sand. The Spanish costas are still very important for tourism, but in the field of city trips, cultural trips and active holidays Spain is doing very well too. More and more people are discovering Spain as a winter sports destination. The best time to travel to Spain depends on the type of holiday and where you want to go in Spain. The weather differs per region.
The best time to travel to Sweden is from June to August. It is then summer in Sweden, which is the warmest and sunniest period for this Scandinavian country. It is by far the most pleasant time to have a holiday in Sweden, despite the fact that there is on average slightly more precipitation in the summer months than in the other seasons. This is mainly because the times when it rains there is more precipitation in a relatively shorter period of time.
Denmark is located in the large part of north-western Europe that has a temperate maritime climate. Because of this, Denmark has four seasons, each with their own weather patterns. The winters are fairly mild and can have some vicious winter days. Spring and autumn are fickle, with both cool days and pleasantly warm days possible. The summer is moderate on average. What you will notice in Denmark is that both sunny hot summers and changeable cooler summers can occur. If you take all the climate statistics into consideration, the summer is the best time to travel to Denmark. The most pleasant travel period is from the end of May to the beginning of September. If you had to choose, we would prefer July and August for almost all of our trips. That coincides with the Dutch summer holidays, which makes Denmark a travel destination that is mainly visited during the summer holidays.
The climate in Belgium is called temperate. Or more precisely: a temperate maritime climate, which occurs mainly along the Atlantic coast of Europe and is strongly influenced by the Gulf Stream.
The temperate maritime climate occurs between the polar and subtropical climates. Because of this location, it is alternately influenced by both climate zones. The proximity of the sea exerts a particularly strong influence. Due to their vastness (seas and oceans cover about 70% of the globe) and their thermal inertia (they take a long time to warm up or cool down), the stored heat is slowly released to the atmosphere (by evaporation and conduction). This explains why this climate has few extremes and is generally characterised by relatively mild winters and fresh, humid summers.
The Republic of Austria is a country located in Central Europe. Austria is situated in the Alps, which means that a large part of the country is mountainous. Approximately two thirds of Austria lies at more than five hundred metres above sea level. Because of its location, the large bodies of water have little influence on the weather in Austria. Therefore, Austria has a temperate continental climate with a high mountain climate at the higher altitudes. Typical for the weather in Austria is the capriciousness you can have to deal with. This can cause big differences in temperature and weather within a relatively short period of time. In addition, the weather, especially locally, is sometimes difficult to predict. The mountains can play an unexpected role, causing the final weather to be quite different from what the meteorologists predicted. Especially in the Alps, the risk of sudden changes of weather is to be expected throughout the year.
