Graz or Vienna?

Post New Topic

2/7/2017 17:36 EST

We are looking to retire and move to Austria in 2-3 years. We're trying to decide between Graz and Vienna. Vienna is very nice but has a lot of tourists. Graz is smaller and doesn't seem as touristy. Any preferences from ex-pats over there?

I'm moving with my family to Graz next month. I've been there 3 times and to VIenna also a few times. I prefer Graz over Vienna because it seems more laid-back. There is more greenery, as well. Vienna is only a 2-hour car ride away from Graz.
