Moving to Austria solo

Hello everybody,

Moving to Austria is a challenge in itself, but even more when you decide to go alone. If this was your case when you arrived, we would like you to share your experience. It might help other people who are also preparing for this new life in Austria.

Do you have any tips for people who are about to move to Austria on their own? Is the country suitable, for instance, for a single woman?

What was your state of mind when you arrived in Austria?

What type of accommodation did you choose: house-share, self-contained accommodation or apartment complex?

How did your integration go once settled? Do you think that being alone made it easier to make friends?

Did you encounter any particular difficulties, being alone when you arrived? If you had to do it all over again, would you take a chance?

Thank you for your contribution!

Cheryl,
