When to go
The beauty of the Garden City is that every time of the year is the best time to visit! All seasons in Christchurch are pleasant and have attractions of their own that lure tourists from around the world. Therefore, be it the summer season during December, January and February or the blossoming spring aura (September, October and November), temperatures in the city are bearable compared to harsh European climates. Tourists can find many ways to entertain themselves and keep busy all day.
When planning a visit to the city, make sure you keep in mind the national holidays and the fact that most locals take days off during mid December and January, which may result in tight accommodation schedules and consequently high rates. Therefore, book the ski resorts in the winter and the beach chalets in the summer both in advance to avoid disappointment.
