The beautiful old town invites you to linger with its cozy cafés and the ships slowly pull past on the banks of the Danube. In summer the temperatures climb to an average of 26 ° C, but the thermometer can rise to over 30 ° C on hotter days.

Due to the mountain ranges of the country, the precipitation in the country is distributed completely differently.
