At midsummer the nights in central Germany are not getting completely dark. The suns elevation does not reach 18 degrees below the horizon. Another reason is the common light pollution throughout the year. Main sources are Frankfurt with its Airport and BASF chemical industries in Ludwigshafen, even if they are dozens of kilometers in the distance.
