Did you know...

You can use the entire Viennese public transportation system for just € 365 p.a. The annual pass for all of Austria costs € 1,095. It is no surprise that people travel double the number of kilometres here with public transport than the EU average.

...that you can use all means of public transport for only € 1 per day in Vienna and € 3 per day throughout Austria?

Attractive for expats

International managers feel at home in Austria and particularly in Vienna. It is the only German-speaking city rated among the 15 most liveable cities in the world, as concluded by the Expat Insider 2021 survey report. This is hardly surprising, in light of the fact that Vienna offers an outstanding quality of life combined with favourable living costs.

Riedel Communications Austria GmbH

The entire Success Story is available here.

Motivation and productivity are sustainably good at the Viennese site. I would say that less undue pressure is exerted on employees. I am talking about the often-quoted easy-going manner of the Austrians. At the same time, this trait is our winning formula. It promotes creativity and is successful in the long term.
