Before you Go
Visa and passport requirements
As a member of the European Union and a part of the Schengen visa-free zone, travelers from many non-EU countries can visit Austria visa-free for a period of up to 90 days out of every 180.
There are no specific health requirements or concerns in Austria. A regular level of precaution is advised.
Austria is one of the safest countries in the world, with no major safety concerns to mention. Petty crime can be a problem in the big cities, but less so than elsewhere in Europe. Regular precaution is advised such as not traveling with large amounts of cash and having back-up plans in the case that you are pickpocketed.
There is a danger inherent in many outdoor pursuits, in particular, skiing, mountaineering, and other alpine sports. Make sure that unless you are of expert-level experience that you always explore marked trails and use a local guide when advised. When adventuring alone, ensure somebody always knows your plans and can raise the alarm in your absence.
All MCLTG luxury tours in Austria are covered by comprehensive travel insurance.
Customs and etiquette: etiquette historically played a huge part in Austrian life, especially when the country was a focal point for various empires. These days the customs have somewhat relaxed and while you may see older men in the cities kissing the back of a woman’s hand, that is most certainly not expected, or appreciated, from visitors. A simple handshake greeting after introducing oneself will suffice.
The local language is generally German, and women may be regarded as frau, while herr is a formal way to address a man. Grüß Gott is a formal way to greet people in the Austrian dialect, and bitte, please, and danke, are well appreciated by travelers who do not speak German.
Mealtime: Austrians generally take a light breakfast between 8-10 am, followed by a larger lunch between midday and 2 pm, and dinner around 6-8 pm.
In Austria, you will have the good fortune of trying many local dishes, such as a variety of schnitzels, goulashes, dumplings, and wiener sausages to snack on. Fun-fact: wiener actually refers to the fact that the style of sausage comes from Vienna.
