Austria - Holiday Tours and Traveller's Notes

Guests visiting Austria on holiday tours should be aware that the Austrian way of telling a waiter to keep the change is to hand over payment and say thank you or danke (pronounced dank-uh). If you expect change wait until you receive it before thanking your waiter.

Austrians greet each other with a hand shake. While you may see some Austrian men bowing to kiss the hand of a lady this is considered ostentatious and is not expected from guests visiting Austria on holiday.
