What's the weather like?

There are three types of climate in Austria: the continental of the plain region of Vienna, with cold winters and warm summers; the Alpine climate of the mountains, snowy and freezing in winter, and cool in summer with some thunderstorms in the afternoon; and the climate of cities at higher altitude, like Salzburg or Innsbruck, with cold winters and quite warm summers with a good amount of thunderstorms.

Getting there

Located at the heart of Europe and bordered by seven countries, Austria is an easy stop-off on a trip through Europe, thanks to its excellent transport connections. Vienna boasts one of central Europe’s best train connections. If you are flying, you can arrive in Vienna major international airport, or you could also fly to Salzburg or Innsbruck.

Bernd went above and beyond on this trip, working with us and finding the best places to teach us multi-pitch climbing. He watched the weather to find the best locations for the given weather. He is an excellent mountaineer and taught us so much.
