Weather in October?

We will be staying near Maria Alm (Marco Polo Alpina) in mid-October. Anyone know how the weather will be? Still good for mountain hikes in the area? Thanks.

In such an area you always have to expect everything. Temperatures should still be moderate, there is also a chance of rain. In Alpine regions someone should always be prepared for sudden weather changes. Theoretically, it could also snow at higher altitudes.

Hi been there and it was 20c in November this year!!! but been there with a foot / 30cm of snow in October!!

Come prepared for the weather, we cycled around the lake at Zell am See and went up onto the glacier on the Kitzsteinhorn.

Also a visit to a spa is a must Kaprun Tauern Spa, and there are two really good ones in the Gastein valley.

The Eagle nest is also well worth a visit along with Salzburg and the Krimml falls.

Have a great time.
