Why Austria?

The hills are alive with the sound of music! Ranked among the 10 safest countries in the world, Austria beckons expats with its museums, architecture, and classical music heritage. Its location in the Alps fosters world-class snow sports during dry winters, while locals frequent Vienna’s bike paths throughout warm summers. Digital nomads love using the robust public transport to zip from the capital to historic Graz, festive Salzburg, and mountainous Innsbruck. While many urbanites speak English, adopting Austrian German is essential for exploring the countryside or finding a job. Monthly salaries skew lower than in similar US cities, but social services mean you can get by on less. Tech-skilled workers can find above-average wages. Immigrating to Austria works best for people who seek quality of life rather than a bigger bank account.
