Climate

Austria lies in the transition area from the oceanic to the continental type of the temperate climate zone, whereby the oceanic influence is particularly noticeable in the high precipitation of the western and northern Alpine chains (in the Bregenz Forest and Salzkammergut locally 2,000-3,000 mm annually), while the low northeastern parts of the country are quite dry (Vienna basin 500–600 mm annually). Also in the interior of the Alps, especially in leeward areas, the amounts of precipitation decrease considerably. In winter, the precipitation falls as snow: at altitudes up to 1,200 m above sea level mainly in January, at higher altitudes the largest amounts of snow fall later. Parts of the Central Alps west of Katschberg are glaciated (Silvretta group, Ötztaler, Zillertal r and Stubai Alps, Hohe Tauern), in the Northern Limestone Alps only Hochkönig and Dachstein have small glaciers. One of the peculiarities of the mountain climate is the formation of local winds, with the foehn coming first. The southern foehn, which occurs in Carinthia, in the Salzkammergut, in the Vorarlberg Rhine Valley, in the Walgau and especially in the central Inn Valley, is particularly effective in the weather, especially in spring and autumn. The greater continentality of the east can be recognized by the slightly higher July and lower January mean temperatures.  Check rctoysadvice to see Austria Tour Plan.

Vegetation

What is striking is the 3.99 million hectares of forest, which makes up around 47.6% of the country’s area. The slopes of the Northern Limestone Alps and the offshore flysch zones as well as the low mountain ranges of Carinthia and Styria are most densely forested. In Austria there are representatives of the Alpine-Central European, Illyrian and Pannonian climatic provinces. In the Alps, the vertical sequence of vegetation into colline, montane, subalpine and alpine levels should be emphasized. The colline level (400–600 m above sea level) includes mixed forests in need of warmth with special involvement of the oak, including the sweet chestnut. The montane level (up to 1,600 m above sea level) mainly comprises beech, larch, fir and spruce stands, while at the subalpine level the crooked and dwarf wood belts up to the tree line and at the alpine level the forest-free areas between the tree and Snow line belong. Here, up to around 3,300 m above sea level, heather grass and cushion plants are found. On the eastern edge of the mountains you can still find foothills of the Pannonian flora, in which the downy oak is particularly prominent, but steppe-like dry grasslands (middle Marchfeld) and natural black pine stands (Steinfeld) can also be found. The Bay of Graz belongs to the Illyrian vegetation province, which is characterized by hop beech and manna ash as its typical representatives.

Wildlife

Due to the diverse nature of the country, Austria’s animal world is also rich in species. B. about 400 vertebrate species. Well-known Central European animals such as roe deer, red deer, wild boar, red fox, badger, various species of marten, brown hare and others are widespread.

The alpine fauna with mammals such as chamois, marmots and arctic hare is particularly characteristic. The Alpine Ibex was successfully reintroduced and around two dozen brown bears are now living in Austria again. The population goes back to both self-employed immigrants and abandoned animals. The bird world in the Alpine region is characterized by species such as golden eagles, capercaillie, rock ptarmigan, wall creepers, alpine choughs and crows.

There is a semi-wild population of the griffon vulture and the project started in 1986 to reintroduce the extinct bearded vulture (lammergeyer) in the Alpine region, in which Austria is also involved, showed its first successes from 1997 onwards. Attempts to reintroduce the bald ibis, which are threatened with extinction around the world and which were exterminated in Central Europe in the Middle Ages, have also been underway for a number of years. The pure black, live-bearing alpine salamander is characteristic of the amphibians. One example of the numerous invertebrates, some of which are endangered, is the Alpine Apollo butterflies.

Numerous Pannonian steppe species invade the east, e. B. the Ziesel, as far as Lower Austria; in the south, especially in Styria, there are a number of sub-Mediterranean and Mediterranean species such as B. rock tern, emerald and wall lizard and sand viper.

On the Hungarian border, the nutrient-rich, shallow Lake Neusiedl with its extensive reed beds is an internationally important breeding, resting and wintering area for countless waders and water birds, including various terns and herons, avocets, spoonbills, wild geese and ducks.
