Weather in late May?

Jump to last reply

We wil be in the Bavarian Alps and Salzburg/Innsbruck region in late May. Will many of the hiking trails be open and accessible at that time, or will the higher elevations still be mostly snow covered? It seems that many of the gondolas and lifts are closed at that time. Is that correct? Will flowers have started blooming in the lower areas? We've been to Switzerland in that same timeframe and know that some areas there just aren't generally in spring/summer mode yet. Is the German and Austrian region the same?

We ask this as we look to revise our itinerary for our trip. Trying to figure out good places (and how long) to stay at some of these smaller towns now that we will be renting a car.

All of your advice has been very helpful so far. Thanks again.
