The InterNations Expat Guide for working and living in Austria

Are you an expat working and living in Austria? Or are you preparing to move soon to Vienna, Innsbruck or any other of the Austrian international hotspots?

Expat life in Austria has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the Neusiedler See, in the rural Burgenland district, learning how Austrian people celebrate Austrian Nationalfeiertag, up to tasting Austria’s favorite dishes such as Apfelstrudel.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Austria. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from living in Iceland to working in Poland.
