Abstract: About 10% of the world's population suffer from migraine. Environmental influences, especially changes in various weather elements, are often cited as triggering factors. The aim of this thesis was to investigate weather changes as possible triggers of migraine attacks. The results show that such changes can increase the risk of suffering a migraine attack for individual patients. Overall, it could be shown that there is no generally valid influence of the weather elements investigated on migraine patients for all patients.
