We will provide Power Stations on site to reload your electronic devices. Electricity in Austria is 230 volts. If you plan on using your own 110-volt appliances, you will need a voltage converter, unless your appliance is designed to also work with 230 volts electricity (dual voltage). It might help to get one before you leave home. Regardless of voltage, if your appliance has flat prongs, you will need a plug adapter: Austrian sockets are designed to accept round prongs.
