Affordable & stylish consultancy rooms to rent. (Border of 14th & 15th Districts)

Would be suitable for therapists, coaches, doctors, architects, self-employed practitioners, you!

A hub for the international English, speaking community, is a fabulous place to network.

Hallo! I have a list of questions that need answering, some expats may know the answers or where to go for answers. We want to move to Austria, mainly as the climate (both weatherwise and culturally) is more suited to our health and fitness needs. It's probably best just to list the questions: I get UK retirement pension next year, but have been retired off early so do not work. I hope the pension will be paid will be OK ( we presumably have to guess what happens when UK drops out of EU). But my wife has a disability - her disability allowance and incapacity (or whatever they call it now) should be paid, I think. What about medical expenses? as she is unable to work is medical care free? What about prescription charges (she also has diabetes)? When one reaches retirement age is medical care free for everyone? What about care for the elderly unable to live at home ? (We intend to stay there). I will be grateful for any help, Thanks

Hi, I realise it is some time since you posted this message enquiry. But I was just wondering if you have moved to Austria already and do you still require some assistance with this, I may be able to help. Regards, Kevin

nickstein posted Sports in Vienna on the Austria forum:
Hi All, If you are sporty like me, one of the bigger problems about moving to a new city is losing your sports social life. I had that problem moving to Vienna so I started a sports socializing network called One Player Down. It would be great to have you on the platform as we are just starting out and are looking for lots of feedback. If you are interested, just message me for an invite. Nick

adminee initially posted:
A writer from the Associated Press is interested in talking to people who decide to retire abroad for reasons related to affordable health care. He is also interested to hear about other reasons why you chose to retire abroad. If you would be interested to speak with him and possibly be written about in his article, please send an email to Joshua Wood at:

No. We fell in love with the nature, and its atmosphere. Very lovely area, quite but on the other hand all the facility is close.

shindigat posted "New to Innsbruck" Shindig on the Austria forum:
Are you the new kid in town? Or have you become bored with the same old faces and places in your Innsbruck circle? Come to a “New to Innsbruck” Shindig and mingle with other new and not so new locals! We organise one social event a month at a venue that doesn’t have too much background noise, and where drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and food can be purchased. Innsbruck is a wonderful city, so join us to meet new people, make a few friends, find little-known spots, and simply get to know what there is in Innsbruck. This group is for *everyone* – it doesn’t matter what nationality, colour or age you are; you can be single people, in a relationship or married; you can be brand new in town, or you might have been here for a while but are looking to meet new people. All are welcome! See to learn more.
