Best Time To Go To Salzburg

Salzburg is at the Northern edge of the Alps and has a typical Central European climate with hot summers and cold winters. The city has moderate weather conditions which would not hinder you from planning your trip. Though, it must be kept in mind to carry appropriate clothing. While planning your trip to Salzburg, one must keep in mind to avoid the peak season and local festivals, as the streets are full of tourists and the prices are hiked.

  • Summers (May-August) – The weather in Salzburg during summers is glorious with the temperatures fluctuating between 12 to 25 degrees Celsius. The precipitation levels are high and summers see the most rainfall so be sure to carry a rain coat. The city is full of tourists and travellers from all over the world and the prices are at their highest as summers are considered as the peak season.
  • Fall (September-October) –  The autumn season in a perfect time to visit. The weather is pleasant; the temperature drops somewhere between 19 to 6 degrees Celsius which is relatively comfortable. The prices drop as the city prepares for the winters and most of the tourists have left making the ambience serene and tranquil.
  • Winter (November - February) –  The temperature falls significantly as the winter arrives in Salzburg, with the average temperature fluctuating between -4 and 4 degrees. The hotels are very cheap at this time of the year and some attractions are completely shut. Salzburg sees its first snowfall during the month of November which opens up ski resorts for winter sports enthusiasts.
  • Spring (March - April) – The early springs are cold and the mercury does not rise until April with temperatures fluctuating between 1 to 14 degrees Celsius. There is also possibility of high rainfall during the beginning month of spring. The ski resorts shut down during this time of the month, the prices start to rise and local attractions open up and start preparing for the peak season.

The best time to visit Salzburg is from September to October when summer crowds left and one can enjoy the beautiful city in comfortable temperatures. Spring time sees fewer crowds but the weather is still cold to enjoy the outdoors, making autumn the best time to visit Salzburg.
