Austria Travel GuideWhen to visit Austria
Austria has four seasons with plenty to do year-round. The most popular time to visit in general is May through September, when tourists come for city breaks, culture, and festivals. Popular cities include Vienna, Salzburg, Innsbruck, and Graz. Christmas is also a busy time for cities. Many visitors come to the alpine provinces, such as Tirol, Salzburg, and Vorarlberg, for skiing during December through mid-March. Slower times include mid-March through April and November when the weather is too cold for outdoor activities, but there's not enough snow for skiing.
