1. Do I need a car?
If you are coming with children, you might find a hire car very useful. This is especially true in winter, if you want to ski in Seefeld.
2. What is the weather like?
Here is a summary for each season:
Spring: Can be very warm from February onwards but cold snaps are not infrequent and snow is possible until late May. The ground can be wet due to snow melt and there will still be snow on high ground making most high peaks difficult to reach. Rain is not infrequent, but when the sun comes out, it can be feel warm indeed.
Summer: Can be hot (sometimes up to 30 deg. and often 25 deg.). Thunderstorms are common in late afternoon and evening, especially in July. Cold snaps of a few days duration are always possible with daytime temperatures dropping as low as 10 degrees at times. Rain is frequent but often limited to afternoon thunderstorms.
Autumn: The weather is usually more settled, especially in September and October. We enjoy a lot of sunny warm days with cooler evenings. Of course, it can rain and even snow from October onwards. September is the best month to scale the high peaks.
Winter: Typically sunny or snowy. The temperature often stays below zero making Leutasch a winter paradise. Although it can get very cold (sometimes -15 deg.) the dry air means that the wind chill is minimal compared to the uk.
