The climate of Vienna (Austria)
Vienna is the capital of Austria and a federal state. Many tourists visit this city every year to visit museums, operas and listen to classical music. Vienna can be seen as the capital of the world where opera and classical music are concerned. Many baroque buildings such as Schloss Schönbrunn can be admired here. You can also visit the Sisi Museum opened in a section of the Imperial Apartments once occupied by the empress. Make sure you sample the Sacher torte, the famous Austrian chocolate cake. Vienna officially has a moderate continental climate. However, fewer extremes can be recorded than you may expect of this type of climate. Despite the absence of the influence of the sea the climate is sometimes referred to as a moderate sea climate. Winters are warmer and have a smaller chance of snow here than in the higher regions. Winters in Vienna are often gray. However, snow is not uncommon. Especially when the weather changes from cold and dry to warm or the other way around. The weather during spring is very unstable. The number of sunny days increases. However, there is a reasonable chance that the weather will be bad for a few days in a row. In March subzero temperatures during the day are uncommon. May and June are the best months to visit Vienna. Temperatures are around 20 degrees Celsius then and the weather is sunny. From June chances of showers increase. When the summer is at its peak thunder storms are not uncommon. July and August are the warmest months with temperatures of 25 degrees Celsius on average. Temperatures may even rise to tropical values of 30 degrees Celsius or more. Periods of tropical weather often end with rain and thunder storms. During the autumn one in every three days is a rainy day. However, rainy periods last longer than during the summer. From the end of October or the beginning of November fall really starts and skies are mainly overcast. From November till February it may be cloudy in Vienna for days on end.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
