Housing in Vienna is certainly different - and better than in that other ex-imperial capital, London. Not sure if i can post a link to facebook or youtube here.

If that does not appear try googling George Clarke's Housing, Vienna Rented housing bears a stigma in Britannia but not over the Channel with Johnny Foreigner !

Vienna has some great subsidised housing (with indoor pool, tennis courts and more). Waiting list is at present 5 years. Vienna also has plenty "fleapits". Of course news media picks the one which is the exception.
No doubt this is the same in every city/country.
In order to qualify you need a min. no. of years when you worked and paid tax.

I would never swop Vienna for Berlin. May be Berlin was pleasant in your student days. Now it is a "failed" city where the cops have given up in despair.

I just landed in Vienna this morning and look forward to great food and apple strudel and more.

Berlin is an exciting place, interesting to visit, to spend one or two month in, but Berlin is not forever. Vienna is more an easy going place, it's certainly more for the longer term than Berlin.

Both Berlin as well as Vienna have issues with immigrants not wanting to accept the local laws and basic rules of the western ways of life, not even attempting to learn proper German. One can deem this opinion as racist or right wing, however if it was the UK the situation would even be better. Berlin is home to arabic clan families where even the local Berlin police have issues dealing with them. In Vienna this is all to a lesser extend.
