Weather in Vienna

Vienna's climate is generally moderate, although the city can experience heavy snowfalls and low temperatures from December to March, as well as occasionally high temperatures in July and August.

Spring (March to May) is the best time to visit Vienna as temperatures are reasonable and classical music events like the Vienna Spring Festival are in full swing. It also a great time to take advantage of the many walks and hikes through the Vienna Woods or local conservation areas.

Summer (June to August) is comfortable with an average daily temperature of 20°C (68°F), although heavy thundershowers are likely. Though busy with tourists, many locals will decamp to summer residences to escape the heat.

Autumn (September to November) has fresh and mild days. It also receives less rainfall than in summer. Less touristy and once again busy with locals, it’s often the best time of year to visit Vienna’s many top tourist attractions.

Winter (December to February) is relatively dry and cold, though it's also the best time to savour the elegance of Vienna amidst soft falling snow. It is also when Vienna’s amazing Christmas markets come to life. Vienna’s Christmas market on Rathausplatz is one of the best, with 150 sales booths coming to life under twinkling lights.
