Vienna in the summer can get close to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and down to the 60's on colder evenings or if it's raining. In the mountains, the temperatures can fluctuate greatly, so you definitely need to bring appropriate clothing for the month. There are laundry facilities in your dorm, and you'll be able to purchase a laundry card to wash for the month. Pack as lightly and smartly as you can - it makes traveling so much easier!
