Weather in Salzburg

Salzburg is at its glorious best in the summer; despite the fact it can rain, flowers are in full bloom and the temperatures are pleasantly warm. But this is also the time when the city is thronging with tourists. It pays to visit in the shoulder season when the city is less crowded - go in September, October, March or April, and the temperatures are still relatively comfortable during the day. November usually marks the first snowfall in the city. Average temperatures fall to a chilly -6°C (20°F) and some attractions shut down for the winter, which lasts until February. For ski lovers, however, there are plenty of resorts to choose from within an hour or two of the city.
