A look at foreigners and nationals living in major European Cities compared with Vienna
How Many, and Where
Expats by the Numbers
A district-by-district glance at the spread of foreigners in Vienna
You’re an expatriate.
You’ve lost touch with the soil.
You get precious.
Fake European standards have ruined you.
You drink yourself to death.
You become obsessed by sex.
You spend all your time talking, not working.
You’re an expatriate, see?
You hangaround cafes.
“Loving life is easy when you are abroad. Where no one knows you and you hold your life in your
hands all alone, you are more master of yourself than at any other time.”
“Almost every truly creative being feels alienated and expatriated in his own country.”
“The real act of discovery is not in finding new lands, but in seeking with new eyes.”
“Who’s an expat? Do we count foreign students? Do we count diplomats as expats? Is it a question of income? If yes, at which level do I turn from a guest worker into an expat?”
