I am traveling with several cousins to France (Paris), Netherlands, Germany, Austria (Vienna), and Italy. My 17-year old sister will be traveling with us. We were hoping that she would be able to come with us if we decide to have a drink or enjoy some nightlife. From looking around on the Internet, it seems that a 16-year minimum is common for wine and beer in many countries. Does anyone know if this has changed recently? I saw a post on this website stating an 18-year old requirement throughout much of Europe. Is the raising of drinking ages throughout Europe possibly a new political development? We shouldn't have trouble in many cafes, bars, or pub-type places, especially if she doesn't order a drink. After all, I'm old enough to be her monther (barely). Clubs or discos may be another story, with bouncers or doorman?
