When is the Best Time to Visit Austria?

June to August is the busiest time of the year with crowds of tourists and lower room availability. Generally speaking, the best time to visit Austria lasts from April to May and from September to October. During these months, the weather is temperate and pleasant, better for enjoying outdoor activities such as sightseeing, biking, hiking and adventures. Prices of accommodation at this period are more reasonable and the attractions are relatively less crowded. Winter is also a great time to visit since the Christmas and New Year's celebrations are held everywhere, attracting tourists from all over the world.

Actually, the best time to visit also depends on what you want to see, where you are aiming to go, and which activity you want to take. For example, if you are interested in hiking in the mountain resort, summer is the best season. Our personalized Austria tours will enable you to see more and enjoy more from your Austria holidays!
