You can exchange money in many exchange offices (we recommend exchange offices outside the main tourist routes) or in banks. If you opt for an exchange office, make sure that you do not have to pay any unnecessary fees and check the exchange rate in advance. If you go to the bank, keep in mind that they are usually closed at weekends.
In most shops and restaurants, however, it is possible to pay with bank cards (VISA, MasterCard, Plus, Maestro, etc.)

Austria has a strong economy and renowned services, so higher quality comes at a higher price.
In restaurants and other catering facilities directly in the area of the Red Bull Ring, prices are around €15-20 for lunch.
Outside the circuit area, resp. directly in the town of Spielberg or Knittelfeld, however, lunch prices are already around €10-15.
