Welcome to Our Expat Community in Austria!

Willkommen to our expat community in Austria! Here at InterNations, we provide a dedicated platform to help you to get the best out of relocating to a new country by putting you in touch with an extensive community of fellow expats in your area. Many new arrivals to Austria have taken advantage of our resources to help them adapt to the Austrian way of life, or to guide them through the relocation process itself. When you join InterNations, you'll find detailed and trustworthy answers to a huge range of frequently asked questions, such as, "how reliable is Austrian public transportation?", "what are the best districts in which to find affordable flats in Vienna?" and "what are the differences between Austrian and Standard German?". Our members are always happy to offer advice and support to fellow expats. As a country at the heart of Europe, Austria has a rich and diverse international community, and InterNations is your door to joining them and discovering the many advantages to living in this country — from sampling the delicious Viennese street food to exploring the stunning landscapes of Innsbruck and Tirol.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to check out our vibrant InterNations Communities in countries like France or Bahrain.
