If this is too heavy for you, try the common white bread roll Semmel. Some Austrians have a habit of eating sweet flour-based dishes Mehlspeise for a main course once a week.
Varieties include Kaiserschmarren , Marillenknoedel , and Germknoedel. If you want to try out traditional Austrian food go for a Gasthaus or Gasthof , which serve traditional food for reasonable prices.
Usually they offer various options of set lunch including a soup and a main dish and in some cases a dessert too. Menus are written in German, though some of the restaurants have English menus as well.
Keep in mind that tipping is expected throughout all restaurants in Austria. Rounding up the price given on the bill is usually enough tip.
In Austrian restaurants you must ask to pay. Get the attention of your server and say: They will then bring you the check, or tell you the amount of the bill verbally.
Then, the proper way to pay in Austria is to give your cash and say the amount you wish to pay, including tip. Servers are not dependent on tips, and it is not appropriate to tip a large amount.
Saying "danke" thank you when paying means keep the change! Vegetarianism is slowly gaining ground in Austria, especially in bigger cities.
As an alternative, there are vegetarian restaurants in every major city, as well as harder to find vegan or vegan-friendly places. You can get vegetarian and vegan products e.
This is especially true for restaurants serving traditional Austrian cuisine which relies heavily on meat -- even apparent vegetable dishes such as potato salad or vegetable soup often contain meat products.
Sometimes, also food clearly labeled as "vegetarian" contains fish, as vegetarianism is often equated with pescetarianism.
Visit them for coffee of course , hot chocolate and pastries. Most famous is Sacher-Torte. Austria has also some first class wines , mostly whites, slightly on the acid side.
The best place to do so is at the "Heurigen" in the suburban areas of Vienna. Originally the "Heurigen" was open only in summer, but more recently you can have your "Spritzer" throughout the year with a little self-served snack.
Austria has also a national soft drink called Almdudler. It is lemonade with herbs. Other typical Austrian soft drinks are Holler or Hollundersaft.
The quality is generally very good but varies greatly between breweries, as in many other Central European countries. The best options are from a modest number of remaining regional breweries not yet bought up by Heiniken.
Visitors acustomed to the selection common in most larger towns in the US or UK may be underwehlemed by beer lists, even in upscale bars.
There are a small number of micro-breweries around the country, offering more exotic brews such as stouts.
Schnaps is a type of fruit brandy served in many parts of Austria, usually after a meal. The most popular flavours are pear, apricot, and raspberry, though dozens of other flavours are available.
There are three quality tiers of Schnaps: The distilled variety is the highest quality; several brands of Austrian fruit Schnaps rank among the best in the world, but are accordingly expensive: Beware of the cheap stuff sold in large bottles in supermarkets; this is often of the "flavoured" type - nothing more than pure ethanol mixed with artificial flavouring.
However, be careful with Schnaps especially if you are not used to alcoholic drinks! Eiswein is a type of dessert wine produced from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine.
Eiswein is generally quite expensive due to the labour-intense and risky production process. In the countryside many farmers will rent out rooms for a couple of nights, both officially and unofficially.
You can also find a lot of camping grounds some of them are open the whole year round but while they are exceptionally clean and often provide additional services, they are also a bit more expensive than in other countries in Central Europe.
Your passport will be returned. If you stay in private accommodation for longer than about two weeks, you should obtain a document of registration Meldezettel from the local registration authority Bezirksamt or Meldeamt , usually located in the town hall.
This document needs to be signed by the owner or tenant of your accommodation. Failure to present this document upon departure could cause difficulties if you have stayed in the country for more than two or three months.
Austria has a diverse school and university system which can be quite confusing especially when you come from abroad.
There is a four-year compulsory elementary school for everyone. In general, compulsory school attendance is 9 years.
After elementary school you can decide between attending secondary school for four years or grammar school for eight years. However, after four years in secondary school or four years in grammar school, you can switch to a vocational school which typically focuses on technical or economic professions.
The proper secondary school diploma Matura from grammar school or from five years technical school grants access to all subjects which are offered at university.
There are no further restrictions e. Austria has many great universities, the majority of which are located in Vienna , Graz , and Innsbruck.
A relatively recent development in tertiary education are the Fachhochschulen Universities of Applied Sciences , vocational colleges that typically focus on engineering and business education with less emphasis on research than traditional universities, but a stronger view toward practice.
If you plan to study in Austria go here: If you need advice, you can contact the national students union at .
Good work is difficult to find for non-fluent German speakers. If you speak no German at all the best option is probably looking for jobs advertised outside Austria.
Another possibility is giving private tuition in foreign languages, though you are unlikely to earn a full time income this way and it takes several months to build up a base of clients.
There is plenty of unskilled work available in the tourism industry. As long as you have a work permit, finding a job can often be as easy as simply turning up at a hotel and asking.
Seasonal work in large ski resorts is the most promising option. Austria is one of the safest countries in the world.
According to the OECD Factbook of , levels of robbery, assault, and car crime are among the lowest in the developed world, and a study by Mercer ranks Vienna as the 6th safest city in the world out of cities.
Violent crimes are extremely rare and should not concern the average tourist. Small towns and uninhabited areas such as forests are very safe at any time of the day.
Beware of pickpockets in crowded places. Like everywhere in Europe they are becoming increasingly professional. Bicycle theft is rampant in bigger cities, but virtually absent in smaller towns.
Always lock your bike to an immobile object. Scams are also present though not as much of a problem as in other European cities especially in the form of street begging telling inexistent tragic stories , or fortune telling or other tourist traps.
Most policemen not all of them, though will understand at least basic phrases in English. A little knowledge of German language is advised, however.
Racism can also be a problem and make your stay an unpleasant experience. Just like anywhere else in Central Europe, there might be instances of glaring, hostile looks, even questioning by the police in big cities like Graz or Vienna is not uncommon.
This might make the non-Caucasian audience unwelcome. However, racism is almost never seen in a violent form. In more remote parts of Austria people of non-white origin are a rare sight.
They are probably just showing curiosity or a distrust of foreigners and have no intention of doing any physical harm. A short conversation can often be enough to break the ice.
Do not walk on the bike lanes especially in Vienna and cross them like you would cross any other road. Some bike lanes are hard to recognize e.
Walking on bike lines is not only considered to be impolite, but it may also happen that you are hit by a cyclist.
Public toilets are free in most cities. In more touristy areas and train stations, however, fees are normal. Public toilets can always be found in city centers normally on the main square , in train stations, and near major tourist attractions.
Households without washing machines are almost unheard of in Austria. As a result, laundrettes are few and far between, and may be completely absent from smaller cities.
People in Austria are friendly and helpful. Most Austrians are very polite and treat tourists well. Austria has an excellent healthcare system by Western standards.
Hospitals are modern, clean, and well-equipped. Most hospitals are owned and operated by government bodies or the Krankenkassen.
Private hospitals exist, but mainly for non-life-threatening conditions. Many Austrians choose to buy supplemental private health insurance.
If you are a traveller from the EU, you can get any form of urgent treatment for free or a small token fee that is covered by the Krankenkassen.
Non-urgent treatment is not covered. Simply show your European Health Insurance Card and passport to the doctor or hospital. Supplemental travel insurance is recommended if you want to be able to see any doctor or go to the special ward.
If you are a traveller from outside the EU, and have no travel insurance, you will need to pay the full cost of treatment up-front with the exception of the emergency room.
Medical bills can be very expensive, though still reasonable when compared to the USA. Austria has a dense network of helicopter ambulances that can reach any point in the country within 15 minutes.
Mountain rescue by helicopter is not covered by your EHIC, or indeed most travel insurances. If you have a medical emergency while you are in the mountains eg.
Mountain sports insurace is therefore highly recommended; you can obtain this from your health insurer or by becoming a member of the Austrian Alpine Club.
For those who plan doing outdoor activities in spring or summer a vaccine is strongly recommended. Also be aware that there is a small, endangered population of sand vipers in the south.
Tap water is of exceptional quality and safe to drink in Austria except in some parts of Lower Austria, where it is recommended to ask about the water quality first!
The quality of water in Vienna is supposedly comparable to that of Evian. Nazi References Symbols of Nazism, including material questioning the extent of National Socialist crimes or praising its actions, are forbidden in Austria, under section 3g of the NS-Prohibition Law.
Foreigners are not exempted from this law. This law also covers shouting Nazi paroles like "Sieg heil" and the performance of the Hitler salute.
Swastikas are technically not banned as a religious symbol, though Hindus, Buddhists and Jains should note that you may get awkward stares from the locals if you chose to wear it, as most Austrians are unaware of its use as such.
You could also end up being subject to lengthy questioning by the Austrian police. Austrians especially those over 40 take formalities and etiquette seriously.
Even if you are the most uncharismatic person in the world, old-fashioned good manners Gutes Benehmen can take you a long way in a social situation.
On the flip side, there are endless possibilities to put your foot in it and attract frowns for breaking an obscure rule.
In general, in most of continental Europe, personnel in shops and other services do not show the same level of politeness people from other continents might be used to.
You may find for example that a shop assistant tells you off after asking to buy something. Never refer to Austrians as Germans; they are separate nationalities, and referring to Austrians as such trivializes their national identity.
Although there are many similarities between Bavaria and Austria, the classical dialect heard in Bavaria sounds rather rude. The display of full nudity in the mainstream media and advertising can be a shock for many visitors, especially those from outside Europe.
It is not uncommon for women to bathe topless in beaches and recreational areas in summer. Like in Germany, do not wear bathing suits into saunas or you garner strange looks or might even get thrown out.
Drop all four of those digits and replace it with a 1, then dial the remaining digits of the phone number. Public phones are available in postal offices.
Phone boxes are getting rare and exchanged by boxes with internet access since the use of cell phones got very popular over the last years.
Phone boxes usually operate with prepaid cards which can be obtained from postal offices and kiosks German: Phone numbers have an area code followed by the phone number itself.
Mobile phone numbers use the prefix , , , , , , or To enjoy cheap international calls from Austria you can use low-cost dial-around services such as pennyphone  , austriaphone  or fuchstarife .

They also work from public payphones. There are cell phones that operate at MHz e. If you plan a longer visit in Austria it might be useful to buy a new mobile with a prepaid card from a local cell phone network provider.
Be aware that some remote areas especially mountainous areas do not have network coverage yet, though this rather the exception than the rule. Even the Vienna underground lines do have perfect coverage.
