For a traveler in search of immersive history and world class architecture, you can’t do worse than Austria. From Austria’s myriad of beautiful mountain villages to its stunning major cities, there is more to see in Austria than in most countries in the world. Of course, as with any travel destination, if you’re not observant you might run into some trouble. Whether you’re stumbling into irreversible social faux pas to outright law-breaking, Austria is not a place where you want to be in the red. If you’re traveling to Austria in the near future, here are some things to consider to avoid staying out of trouble.
1. If You’re in Vienna, Get Out of the Way of Old Ladies
It’s always a good idea to show some consideration and let the elderly get in front of you in line or take your seat on public transportation. It’s just respectful. Whether you agree with that sentiment or not, when you’re visiting Vienna it won’t matter, because little old ladies feel aggressively entitled to this kind of respect. If you don’t let them cut in line, they’ll just elbow past you like rockstars. Even worse, the people around you will think you’re the one who did something wrong.
