Climate in Vienna
Vienna has a moderate continental climate. Our summers are usually very warm and even spring feels like summer at times. Winters in fact are really chilly, and while we often experience "Weihnachtstauwetter" (Christmas thawing), January and February are usually the iciest months.
The best travel season is between April and October (ball and Christmas season discounted for this purpose), with temperatures ranging in the region between 10 and 35 degrees Celsius. While many people prefer to travel in the spring or autumn, my preferred season is the summer, when Vienna's many outdoor terraces, cafes, taverns, wineries and gardens are busy until late at night.
For its continental climate, Vienna Austria weather includes a fair balance of sunshine and rain, with June being statistically the wettest month, and January the driest month See the climate chart below for an overview of average temperatures, rainfall and sunshine in Vienna.
What Clothes To Bring?
My Portuguese in-laws and many of our friends travelling to Vienna used to ask this question. The clothes we bring to Vienna by season:
November to March: warm winter gear, woollen pullovers, padded boots, gloves, scarves, caps (my husband swears on long winter underwear); but cut out the polar expedition gear.
April to May: pullovers, padded jackets, solid and rainproof footwear, rain gear.
June to August: summer gear, light sweaters, a light jacket just in case, rain gear just in case;
September to October: pullovers, light or padded jackets, solid and rainproof footwear, rain gear especially for October.
