Find info on dumpster diving at Trashwiki.

Dumpster diving works very well. Paid food is usually priced as in most of continental Western Europe


Generally good wifi. Around universities and libraries also free computer often.


Extremely rentable. Austrian cities may grant you your highest busking income ever.

There are usually quite severe rules, permit and regulation to follow but, if you are foreigner, you don't speak much German and you don't plan to stay too much in town (few days maximum weeks), you might be lucky and never meet undercover cops/guards checking you, if it happens you won't probably get any fine, unless you behave unreasonably..

Note: According to the public security law applied, offering a ride to someone who wants to beg is criminalized, despite the fact that in 2012 the Austrian constitutional court considered begging an act of free expression and communication, anchored in the European Convention on Human Rights.
