What should I pack when moving to Austria?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Austria to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"Well, every time we return to the States we brings loads of our favorites things. But we never forget our vitamins which cost a fortune in Austria, our over the counter meds, also expensive here and spices. Thank You Sam's and Costco! The biggest mistake was shipping our Volvo 6cyl over here, it cost us 22,000 euros in customs fees when we had been told it might be 6000 euros… ugh. We also brought too many clothes for fitting into their Schranks, it's just not necessary. And the best piece of advise is sign up for Amazon.de, they have everything," explained one expat living in Austria.
