Climate and average weather in Austria
Austria has a temperate and alpine climate. In summer the daytime temperature is warm and it can even be hot but nights are cool. Winters are cold with temperatures regularly dropping below freezing. It's terrain is highly mountainous due to the presence of the Alps; only 32% of the country is below 500 metres (1,640 ft), and its highest point is 3,797 metres (12,457 ft). This makes Austria a popular destination for skiing and snowboarding.
