Best Time to Visit Salzburg

The weather in Salzburg is good from early April to October, and this the best time to visit as the ambient day temperatures are in the 30 degree C range, though July and August get hotter and the mercury could touch 38 degrees C. The peak season is July - August as tourists pour in and festivals are aplenty. The Salzburg Festival held in end July and August is probably the best time to visit especially if you happen to be a culture vulture. At this time the whole town becomes a cultural venue where plays, operas and musicals are staged.

Winter sees the mercury dropping drastically and reaching the 0 degree C mark and below at the height of winter, in January. December is a good time to be here if you don't mind the cold too much. Festivities fill the air with the Christmas Markets that are held and hoteliers also drop their prices. This is also a good time to visit if winter sports are what you are looking for. It starts to snow in December and carries on till February.
