Interesting images. With the rainy Hamburg is one old cliche, but it can't stand against facts.

Annual rain:
Hamburg: 774 mm
Berlin: 581 mm
Munich: 964 mm

Berlin rainfall is much closer to that of my old hometown! I'm surprised to see how much Munich gets though!

Auckland generally records 1240mm of rain per year!

The amount of rain might be lower in Hamburg than in Munich, but it is distributed on more days. Also the weather in Hamburg is often unstable. In summer you often don't know in the morning how the weather will be in the afternoon. So you usually have to prepare yourself for temperatures between 15 and 30°C, and don't miss the umbrella!

I think that's way more important the the total annual precipitation. Munich has more heavy summer downpours while Hamburg has many days with continuous drizzle. These drizzle days are the most depressing weather possible. Summer thunderstorms with sometimes over 50mm in a few hours are quite exciting.

Actually, I moved from a drizzle city to a sudden downpour city and the weather here is definitely more depressing. I hate being caught outside in a sudden downpour as unlike the drizzle, it completely soaks you through and you need a very heavy duty raincoat to remain dry. I prefer the drizzle - it's all subjective.

^ I guess that's climate change. When I lived in Auckland many years ago it was also a drizzle city. It never had the sudden downpours I was used to in Sydney. I suppose it's changed now.

Then again, London is a sunnier place now as well, so I won't complain

Oh it drizzles here as well, but we do get sudden huge downpours too! Best of both worlds I guess!

As I remember the most sunhours were in the north, too. I believe on the island Hiddensee. Munich has more of a continental climate with hoter summers and colder winters with meters of snowfall. Hamburg has more maritime climate.
