When to visit Austria
The summer months traditionally see the largest number of Austria tours passing through the country. Days between May and October are reliably warm, with temperatures climbing as high as 35°C during the season’s peak in August. Various regions experience different climates depending on their location related to the Alps, so wise travellers will pack an extra layer or two even if visiting in summertime.
While the winters of Austria are as chilly and windy as you would expect from such a mountainous country, this shouldn’t deter you from considering a tour during December through to January. There’s something incomparably magical about touring Austria around Christmas time; the markets, the festivities, the joyous atmosphere – it all makes braving the colder climate completely worth it. Needless to say, winter sports enthusiasts should also lean towards visiting around this time.
