Weather in June/July/August

We want to visit either Zell am See or Seefeld in the summer. Please can anyone advise on the daytime temperatures in Zell am See, and in Seefeld so we can compare.

Answer very difficult when Austria is the destination! My partner has been to Seefeld many times and to the Zell area a few times. In his experience the temperatures are very similar, as is the rainfall! In mountainous areas like these temperatures can vary enormously during the week - we were in Neiderau a couple of years ago in June - the snows had only melted a couple of weeks before we went, we arrived to temps of around 12 degrees, by the end of the week we were basking in 25 degrees! Luck of the draw I'm afraid! Ask if you want more info on either resort.

Seefeld is on a suuny plateau at 1200 meters.

Zell much lower at about 700 meters. Thus in theory Seefeld is normaly just a little cooler.

Zell with a lake nearby can have some effect also.

A weather survey for the period 1970- 2000. by Austrian weather services

of course in celsius.

Zell average temperaturs Low min High Max

June 9.7 32

July 11.8 35

august 11.7 33.2


June 6.7 28.4

July 9.1 32.2

August 9.1 30.3

Seefeld more sunny days and a little less rain.

Many like Seefeld air as it is known to be good for allergy sufferers with little pollen.

Just one addition - the Czech fussball team will use Seefeld as a base to train for Euro 2008 during June. Seefeld is popular with athletic teams with its good facilities air quality and favorable weather.

Anywhere with mountains can vary, can be 33c in sunny valleys or much cooler, say 20c,

Expect it to be about 10c cooler when you are over 2000m. Can be freezing near the glaciers above Kaprun (these are 3000m high). Unusually there was snow first week of Sept 2007 although didn't settle in the villages, whereas a week earlier it had been 28c. When you get high pressure and sun, can feel warm on top of mountains as sun heats the bare rock especially if no breeze. Can be small refreshing breeze in valleys as some are sunnier one side of valley so warm up unevenly during day.

Was very interested to read this as we were thinking of going to Kaprun nr Zell this July/August but have been put off by recent gloomy web cam pictures and climate advice that August is apparently the wettest month. Any more info would be very welcome.

Hi! We've been to Zell for the last 3 summers - all in August. We've had maybe 1 or 2 days of cloud and some rain showers during each 2 week holiday, but most of the time it's been absolutely beautiful and sunny. Gorgeous place too. Obviously you can never guarantee the weather, but in general it's lovely that time of year.
