English Speaking Expat Community in Salzburg?

  • Hi All

    As much as I love Austria and the Austrian people, I'm just wondering if there's an established english speaking expat community that meet up regularly in Salzburg? I'm pretty new here, cant yet speak German and I'd love to meet some other Aussies, english, irish, etc etc.... to hang out with occassionally!

    There is a very good chance my family and I will be moving to Salzburg Austria in less than a month. We are from Seattle Washington and are looking forward to the change. How long have you been in salzburg? Have you found it a good place to live? Are the locals friendly to us outsiders?

    Hope to meet you soon

    Kind Regards,

    Hi my name is gavin i have just moved to Austria from Spain with my Austrian girlfriend and my 10 month old son, i am English and looking to meet other English here. After living in Spain for 6 years and having a crazy time some might say its time to settle down, that i don't mind but i still want to relate to my own kind football, nights out and family events etc. Also if anybody no's of any work, I've been a builder for sometime now and i might add a good one to, please let me no. lucky for me i have my girlfriends family to help but if i don't relate soon i might go mad. Being in Salzburg is good only totally different to Spain but good culture and amazing views can't wait for the ski season and the golf is good. So just a job to find and a few good friends and i'm sorted and maybe just one winning lottery ticket. Anyway baby kicking off must go. ANYBODY OUT THERE

    I'm going to be moving to Zell Am See in the near future and would love to know if there is a place where some English speakers hang out. It's always a bit scary moving to a new area where you don't know anyone, but it's even harder when you don't speak the language well enough to make easy conversation!

  • Englishman in Salzburg

    Hello! I gave up everything I had to come to Salzburg in 09/2008 on the promise of an amazing job with an even more amazing salary! The job was OK, but the salary was catastrophically low and then, the firm I worked for went bankrupt leaving me in debt and struggling to pay the rent on my tiny one-roomed flat. Now, I've got a part-time job as an English teacher, but I'm living on barely more than the state benefits I'd be entitled to if I gave up my present job. I don't know how long I'll survive here in my present situation, but I'd be happy to meet or correspond with anyone who wants to communicate with an English native speaker. Whoops! Sorry about the verbal diarrhoea! (Just wanted to demonstrate that I can spell words of more than one syllable - sometimes!)
