Rummenigge claims that the German top flight should introduce a longer winter break and extend the season into June and July to acclimatise the players.
"From May to August is when we do not play football in Germany, although these are the months with the best weather," he told Die-Welt. "A change could be an advantage to us.
"The football family is united. Either pausing in January and February or in October and November, I can see in this model as an opportunity for the Bundesliga. We would prefer to pause when the weather is bad here."
Bayern have already won the Bundesliga this season.
