Here's some good news for apartment hunters.

Finding a good apartment in a nice neighbourhood at a reasonable price is easier in Vienna than in most of other European capitals. This is because a top priority of the City of Vienna is to provide affordable quality housing for all income brackets. Social housing is one way this is achieved. Today, social housing includes approximately 220,000 community-owned and 200,000 subsidised rental apartments.
