Austria has a temperate and alpine climate. In summer the daytime temperature is warm with an average maximum temperature of 26.5 degrees Celsius (79.7°F) in July in Vienna. Nights are often much cooler. The amount of rain during summer can vary depending on location. For example in Innsbruck it rains 128 mm (5.0 in) in July, while it rains a lot less in Vienna with just 63mm (2.5 in).

Austria's terrain is highly mountainous due to the presence of the Alps; only 32% of the country is below 500 meters (1,640 ft), and its highest point is 3,797 meters (12,457 ft). This makes Austria a popular destination for skiing and snowboarding from mid-November till the end of March.
