Sunset today: 21:01 h
(Times for Vienna)

The times of sunrise and sunset in Austria are significantly influenced by the country's very northern position in the hemisphere. Relatively high in the north the days in summer are long and short in winter. With up to approximately 16:10 hours the longest days happen in June. On the other hand, the longest and darkest nights are in winter (in the southern hemisphere it is the other way around). In December a night in Vienna lasts almost 16 hours.

Who wants to look at the sunrise in these days, has to wake up early. Sunrise in Vienna starts already at 4:53 in the morning. The sunset on the other hand is currently late at 21:01 in the evening.

Where does the sun rise in Austria?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Austria is Kittsee in the state of Burgenland. There, the sun rises at 4:50 am and sets at 8:57 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Feldkirch (Vorarlberg) at 9:23 pm.


Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Vienna lies on the 48th degree of northern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Austria this period averages 39 minutes. In June, it's about 42 minutes in Vienna, while in December it's 36 minutes.
