April - May

Spring in Austria is considered to be a `shoulder season`, as the temperatures start to get warmer and before the summer crowds. The weather is excellent for outdoor activities with a typical average temperature between 58° to 65° F. This is when the greyness of winter vanishes and the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the grass is growing. It is worth noting that this is also a rainy time, particularly in April; make sure you are carrying an umbrella if you are here in spring. If you plan to visit Vienna or any of the urban areas, the crowds will be much lower, allowing you to get the most out of the city. This is also a great time to get good discounts.
