Austria climate overview
The land-locked country of Austria lies at the heart of Europe. It was the epicentre of European culture during the 18th and 19th centuries, which is still reflected in the fabulous architecture and musical ancestry of Vienna and Salzburg.
The entire south and west of Austria is dominated by the Alps, with spectacular rugged peaks that are amongst Europe's highest. Extensive conifer forests cling to the upper slopes, giving way to deciduous woodlands of oak and beech. Below this are lush meadows with poppies and other wild alpine flowers. Embedded within the mountains nestle crystal-clear lakes and caves; the Eisriesenwelt Caves are the largest accessible ice caves in the world with frozen waterfalls adding to their unusual beauty.
Winters in the mountain regions can be bitterly cold with extensive snowfalls and snow-cover lasting usually from December to March. Summer temperatures are comfortable lower down the mountains but with the constant threat of afternoon thunderstorms. These are most prevalent over north facing slopes, which leave southern slopes much drier and sunnier.
The extreme east and the Danube valley in the north are the only low lying areas. In these regions there are fertile river valleys that support the bulk of the country's arable farmland. Wine is also grown throughout most of the northeast of Austria and in the south-eastern regions bordering Slovenia and Hungary.
Warm summer temperatures across the lowlands can trigger afternoon thunderstorms, but otherwise, summers are sunny. Winters are cold with frequent showers and low cloud or fog hanging in the air for days.
