    • Hi Vena,

      There will be competition but I hope you apply for the internship. Vienna is a great city, full of things to do and I found people very helpful when I was visiting especially if you learn at least a smattering of Austrian. Anyway, to your question, it sort of depends on where you are living currently, meaning do you have anything to offer in exchange? If so, then you can go to or as they list exchanges all over the world including Vienna and it will be free or cost you very little. If you do not have a house or apartment to swap then visit and search under Vienna to see what you can find. There is The Caretaker’s Gazette (, a handy newsletter which lists housesitting opps worldwide. You will need to subscribe in order to see the listings but it’s not that much ($30) and it will also allow you to post an advert saying you are looking for a housesitting opp in Vienna. Finally, if you are accepted as an intern I am sure that the librarians involved will have some advice about housing. For an opportunity this valuable, I say go for it and the details will work out. Best of luck and keep me posted, Sarah P.
