    Vienna Local Customs

    I learned the "Gruss Gott" when I made a stay in a factory of the (catholic) southern Germany i.e. Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. That was half century ago and it seems to me that in Austria as well as in Southern Germany this way of greeting is disappearing. Last year there has been some uproar in Baden-Württemberg because it was said that the...

  • Tipping

    Vienna Local Customs

    I saw it on many "tips" on VT, that it is usual to add 10% to the bill... THAT is simply not correct, as most people in Austria will just ROUND UP the bill like : 02,70 --> 3,00 27,30 --> 28,00 246,20 --> 250,00 The only "sense" of that kind of tipping is, not to get back a lot of small change back !

  • dress - codes

    Vienna Local Customs

    Although there is no formal dress code in the sense that you won't be let in without a tie, you will for sure get better service and experience less arrogance and grumpiness if you dress up a little. You'll find that the locals are generally nicely dressed, women in dresses/skirts and high heels, men in tuxedos, and not as casual as tourists. You...

    Schoenbrunn castle - the former summerresidence of the austrian emperors. The big park around the castle Schoenbrunn is a great place for a walk, or to go jogging, BUT is totally Off limits for dogs !!

    FASCHING is the austrian expression for Carneval - and in comparison to Venice or Cologne our kind of Carneval is certainly nothing you would miss, if you miss it...
