Life in Vienna

Hi,i'm planning to move to Vienna this Summer for some months (wich may extend to a gap year) and i need some tips on general cost of living, housing,volunteering/job opportunities,and german learning courses,preferably within the 1st district.I have already lived in Belgium so i understand most of the expatriates'chalenges, but still would like to know more about life in Vienna and how to better prepare my stay, since i have no contacts in the city except for some ocasional"friends of friends". Also, travelling as a single female,i would like to know the risks of staying in Vienna by myself, since i found Belgium safe enough to walk the streets alone and drove my bicycle often at night without any problems.  Thank you :)

Hi! A shared appartment is about 300 Euro I think, transportation is 50 Euro/month. A beer is about 3 euro if you go out, 60 cent at the supermarket (can). Coffee is also about 2,50-3 Euro. You can eat out for about 10 Euro including a drink.. Cab isn't too expensive either.

Vienna is a very safe city so don't worry about that.

Welcome to Vienna :)

Hello Lorenamc26!

Welcome to Expat-blog! :)

Check out Vienna classifieds. It might be useful. Also, you could post an advert (Category- Accommodation).

Good Luck!
