Salzburg Climate & Weather

Salzburg has a continental climate with Alpine influences because of its proximity to the mountains. Summers are warm and pleasant, although rainy days are common. Winters are cold, with temperatures hovering just above or below freezing, with plentiful snow.

Salzburg experiences a long, beautiful summer lasting from Easter through to mid-October. But the most popular months for a holiday in Salzburg are July and August, when the main festivals take place. Obviously, though, these are also the most crowded months when tourists throng the streets. Winter brings winter sports enthusiasts into the city on their way to or from the ski slopes.
