Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in Austria accepting of differences?

Answer this Question

When we asked people about diversity in Austria and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"Vienna is as diverse as any large city in Western Europe nowadays is. The people might seem insular in so far as you do not make an attempt to behave as they do and try speaking their language. In general it takes a while to make friends here, but once you make them friendships are not as superficial as they are in the USA, for ex," said a member in Vienna, Austria.

"In Austria, diversity is present across multiple spheres of life such as culture, religion, and language. Austria is home to a variety of religious backgrounds which include Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox and Muslim. There is also an increasing presence of non-religious individuals in Austria. Additionally, Austria is home to a number of languages and Austria’s official language is German, although many ethnic minority languages such as Turkish and Serbian are spoken in Austria. In general, the people of Austria are accepting of differences and multiculturalism is seen as part of their identity. Recently, there has been an increase in support for refugee and asylum seeking populations in Austria, with several cities offering programs to aid in their integration into Austrian life," remarked another expat who made the move to Austria.
