Luggage and bags:
For luggage, just make sure you take good durable bags (you know how baggage handlers are).
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Shoes: Take brown or black leather shoes. Like I said before, from what I saw, Europeans don't wear tennis shoes unless playing a sport. Better not to stand out.
The fasions I saw were really no different, so just normal sweaters and kakis were perfect for me.
Photo Equipment: Take you digital camera and an extra memory card. There are so many photo ops that you can quickly run out of room on your card. I take my laptop everywhere with me, so I tend to upload my pictrues to the computer evey couple days. This way, I can hop on the internet in a cyber cafe, and order prints that will be waiting for me when I get home.
Rainy season: There is no special rainy season
Avg. Temp. in Spring: max.: 9 – 19°C ( 49 - 66°F ); min: 1 - 9°C ( 34 - 49°F )
Avg. Temp. in Summer: max.: 20 – 24°C ( 68 - 75°F ); min: 10 - 14°C ( 50 - 57°F )

Miscellaneous: A cup of coffee is frighteningly expensive in Austria. I recall about £3 a cup being the norm (5 euro). If you’re addicted to coffee it would be a big help to take a travel kettle so you can get a boost without too much expense. We didn’t and ended up sticking mostly to water and beer (not such a hardship!).
