Best Time To Visit Austria

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

Seasons dictate tourism in Austria. The best time to visit Austria depends on various factors, whether travelers are aiming for urban or rural parts. Most of the mountain resorts have two distinct tourist seasons: winter for skiing enthusiasts and summer for hikers and backpackers. More urban centers like Vienna and Salzburg, however, are considered year-round tourist destinations in Austria. Vienna attracts lovebirds over Christmas and New Year, while the Salzburg Festival pulls in scores of well-heeled visitors in July and August to have a ball.

 

The pleasant weather in spring and fall makes March-April and September-October the best season to visit Austria. In spring and fall, crowds are less, most attractions are open, and hotel prices are lower. Depending on what kind of a trip one is planning, honeymoon or family tour, the best time to visit Austria for holiday also changes. Let’s take some of the seasonal experiences in Austria:
