What to wear

Winter can be cold and the ground icy, so several layers of warm clothing and good shoes are essential, along with gloves, scarf and a woollen cap or a hat. In summer, wear layers you can peel off and make sure you have something for occasional rain showers. Especially in larger cities, Austrians tend to dress up well in the evening or for good restaurants, but fashion jeans are fine even for upmarket clubs and restaurants if combined with a good shirt or blouse and a men’s sports coat (Sakko) or women’s summer jacket.
