Austrian dos and don'ts

There are many clichés about Austrians, some contradictory: they are laid back ('gemuetlich') and a bit grumpy all at the same time. As a rule, people will let you know if you transgress: So if you cross the street, when the traffic light is red, those people who disapprove will make their displeasure noticable to you.

Generally, Austrians are very approachable and glad to help.

Generally, people will understand if you make a mistake. Don't worry, they have been abroad themselves.

However, if you are in Austria to do business it might be worth doing some extra research.
