Austrian Weather and Climate

Austria is located in a temperate climatic zone with a Central European climate influenced by the Atlantic climate. The four seasons all have typical temperatures and climatic characters.

Due to the topographical diversity of Austria and the relatively large West-East expanse, there are three differentiating climatic regions:

East: Pannonian climate with a continental influence – low precipitation, hot summers, but only moderately cold winters.

Alpine Regions: Alpine climate - high precipitation (except inner alpine valley regions such as the Upper Inntal), short summers, long winters.

Remainder of the Country: Transient climate influenced by the Atlantic (in the West) and a continental influence in the South-East.
