I review our current understanding of the properties of strongly interacting matter at high temperatures, based upon numerical calculations in lattice QCD. I discuss the chiral and deconfining aspects of the QCD transition, the equation of state, fluctuations of conserved charges, color screening, meson correlation functions, and the determination of some transport coefficients.
