Salzburg is buzzing twelve months a year and there's not really a best time at which to come. Spring and summer bring a wealth of colour to the city's parks and the surrounding hills. At tthis period draws the biggest tourist crowds. The Advent season (from the end of November through to Christmas) is an atmospheric and increasingly popular period.
Weather in SalzburgThere's a Christmas market in the square outside the cathedral, with stalls selling all kinds of handicrafts alongside irredeemable tat, and ad-hoc kiosks doling out sausage, Schmalzbrot (bread and dripping) and gallons of Gluhwein, bringing an outdoor party atmosphere to the winter evenings.
Austria’s climate is moderate. The average temperature during the summer (June to mid-September) is around 20°C/68°F, with temperatures occasionally reaching as high as 35°C/95°F.
During winter (mid-November to February) temperatures may fall as low as -15°C/4°F, but on average is around -4°C/25°F.

Most of the rain is to be expected in May and June, but there is no distinct rainy season.
Salzburg is like a candyland, chocolate doesn't grow on trees but you will
always have a delicious meal or treat on your plate which resembles a work of
Viennese Schnitzel served with plenty of chips and tomato sauce. This iddy's favorite can be found on almost every menu, and it's especially tasty when the kids can romp about in the playground afterwards either at the Latschenwirt or at the Schlosswirt in Aigen.
Salzburger Nockerl, don't open the oven! Because then you will make the fluffy dessert collapse. It's so delicious that you will want to jump inside it! Salzburger Nockerl is served with a panorama view of the city at the Stiegl Gastgarten on the Mönchsberg
