Sunniest states

When looking at areas, or more concretely Federal States in Germany, the sunniest states were Baden-Wuerttemberg, Saarland and Rhineland Palatinate (common knowledge among the population). Confirming popular opinion, Hamburg was indeed the state with the least sunshine hours in recent years. In winter, based on recent figures, Germany counted 200 sunshine hours.

National weather service

The German National Meteorological Service (Deutscher Wetterdienst or DWD) monitors the weather in Germany. The service is a federal authority providing information for the population and conducting scientific research. It’s also responsible for issuing official warnings when weather conditions are predicted to be threatening.
