Tipping In Austria
Austria, the home of schnitzel and beer! What more could you want? Tipping can be common in Austria but you need to know when to tip and where. Like Germany, simply leaving change at the table isn’t normal so be sure to read our guide on how to properly tip while you tour Austria.
Taxis: Drivers will expect about a 10% tip. Usually you can just round up to meet this though.
Hotels: Since service is included you aren’t expected to tip. You can tip the bell boy a euro a bag and the maid 2-3 euros a night if the service is very good.
Restaurants: Service is included on the price, however you are expected to tip on top. The best way for this is to simply round up to the nearest 5-10 Euro depending on the total. You shouldn’t leave this on the table though, you should hand this to the waiter and say “danke” as an indication of a tip.
Bars: Like restaurants service will be included, however you should round up the bill when paying. Again hand this directly to the bar tender and say “danke” when paying.
Other: Austria is a great country but outside what we mentioned above you won’t find much of a need to tip anywhere else.
