It’s no surprise that the city on the Drau is considered the “home of work-life balance.”

The unique landscape, combining mountains and valleys, lakes and rivers, city and countryside, draws hundreds of thousands of people to the region every year. No matter what season it is, fun, relaxation and inspiration are around every corner.

At the same time, the diverse and pristine environment also makes Villach an extraordinary place to live for all those who call this region home. Lakes with drinking-water quality and the extraordinarily clean air are a testament to the high environmental standards of Villach and its surroundings.

In addition to the favorable geographic location, living in Austria also has many social, health-care-related and economic perks. The country’s social and health care system is among the best in the world and for decades numerous international surveys have singled out Austria as a particularly safe and wealthy country with a high quality of life.

While the city’s population enjoys an above-average prosperity level and comprehensive social benefits, living in Villach proves surprisingly affordable when compared to many other international destinations. Villach benefits from its status as a “small town,” offering everyday living at affordable prices in an outstanding setting.

So it’s no surprise that the city on the Drau is considered the “home of work-life balance.”

JOYFUL NETWORKING

The region’s international community has been steadily growing for years. The Carinthian International Center founded several years ago welcomes new arrivals and introduces them to both expats and locals.

New residents thus feel at home in Villach in no time at all. With an extensive network and acting as a "Carinthian Welcome Center" the CIC also organizes a large variety of courses and events throughout the year.
