Austria is traditionally considered a country of winter holidays, although tourists visit the country all year round. Here is a very mild winter, almost no severe frosts, which contributes to mass tourism. The Alps occupy a large part of the territory and thanks to this, Austria, along with Switzerland, is called a ski country. In the summer it is very warm here, and tourists are going to have a rest among picturesque alpine landscapes.
And local people love autumn most of all: at this time there is no summer heat, but still far from the winter cold.
