Travel tips and best travel time
The largest airport in New Mexico is the Albuquerque
International Sunport, although there are currently no direct
connections to Germany and you therefore usually have to change
in another American city.
The climate in the US state is not too hot, despite the vast
desert landscape, so there can be quite sensitive freezing
temperatures at night in the desert months. The optimal travel
time is therefore in spring and autumn.
