Carinthia in summer

Lots of sunshine and often temperatures over 30 degrees Celsius. Due to the southern location higher up the humidity is low. In summer it feels very pleasant, especially if you are going to exercise or take a trip.
When the sun goes down in the evening the temperature goes down as well, so that you have a pleasant sleep also in summer.
Every new day again you can enjoy the Alps well-rested, and find new adventures, wellness and culture.

Carinthia in the offseason

in September zijn er veel zonnige dagen met een aangename warme temperatuur. Er is weinig neerslag. Ideaal om uitstapjes te maken of om u zelf nog even in de verrassende warme zon te koesteren. In oktober is de natuur vol prachtige herfstkleuren terwijl op de toppen van de bergen de witte sneeuw valt.
Op de dag tourtochten maken of lekker bewegen en ‘s avonds genieten van stevige boerse Oostenrijkse gerechten. In November vindt de korte overgang naar de winter plaats. In December valt er regelmatig sneeuw afgewisseld met zonnige dagen.

Carinthia in the off season

In September there are many sunny days with a pleasantly warm temperature. There is not much precipitation, so it is ideal for outings or to just enjoy the surprisingly warm sunshine for a bit longer. In October the nature is full of beautiful autumn colours, while the peaks of the mountains are slowly turning white.
Enjoy long trips or hikes or other active things during the day and later in the evening hearty Austrian farm dishes. In November the short transition to the Winter takes place. In December snow will fall regularly, alternated with sunny days.

Carinthia in winter

A blue sky, snow and lots of sunshine.
Because of the clear sky the temperature will drop at night, sometimes to -20 degrees Celsius, while during the day it can rise, when measured in the sunshine, up to +20 degrees Celsius.
Also, 0 degrees Celsius is reached early in winter because of the clear sky. It will stay very cold at night far into the season, so that the snow cannons can be used for a long period. Only very late in winter the temperature will stay above 0 degrees Celsius at night.
During the winter there often is snowfall early as well as late in the season. There is a long and sunny skiing season in Carinthia.

Carinthia in preseason

After a quick transition, in which all the snow will disappear due to the strong sunshine, and sometimes comes down in short but heavy rain showers, you will find many surprisingly warm and sunny days already in April and May.
On the same day you can ski on the glacier and then in the evening have a barbeque outside in shorts and t-shirt. The next day you can have a day on the beach in Italy. As if you have made a world trip in one holiday. This makes Carinthia so special in the pre-season!
