Austria weather overview

One of the most mountainous areas in Europe, Austria is, not surprisingly, popular with winter sports enthusiasts. The Alps in winter are a great place to be, provided you stay high up. Conditions in mountain resorts are usually sunny and crisp while the valleys below are often shrouded in cloud and fog. In the summer, the opposite applies and the valleys bask in bright sunshine while the mountains are veiled in mist.

In the southeast of Austria, the hills attract as much winter snow as those in the north but summertime conditions are more pleasant, with long bouts of brilliant sunshine. Always expect the unexpected here: the weather can quickly become unsettled and sudden thunderstorms May arise. The Danube Valley and the Vienna Basin are a good option for sun lovers since they enjoy a drier climate and plenty of summer sunshine.

What to pack for Austria weather

Light clothes are fine in the summer but should be supplemented with warm wraps, and be prepared for summer rain. In the winter, sturdy skiwear is the order of the day.
