Happy Landings - Germans in Vienna
Gut gelandet - Deutsche in Wien
Does the «Kraut» or in Austrian terms «Piefke», the unpopular German, still exist? Since the credit crunch the Germans are the largest immigrant group in Austria and mingle everywhere with the locals. But those who live and work here are on their guard and look to adapt as far as possible. Many have no idea what's in store for them - a foreign language, prejudice, differences in mentality. A culture shock, says the Viennese essayist, Franz Schuh. After arriving in Vienna, many Germans feel driven onto the defensive, but the defensive makes them creative. So, are they at home already, or still guests?
