We are planning a trip for next September to include Vienna, Salzburg, and Hallstatt. My wife is 68 and has a medical condition that can worsen a lot with second hand smoke. Eating outside a lot is not always realistic. With close tables at outdoor cafes the smoke can become noticeable. This issue is not just an annoyance for us but is a real health concern.
Is it realistic to plan on visiting Austria with the current smoking culture? Or should we just stick with Germany which does not have smoking in restaurants?
