"Nur in der Wiener Luft" ("Only in the Vienna Air") was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1962, performed in German by Eleonore Schwarz.

The song was performed fourth on the night, following Spain's Victor Balaguer with "Llámame" and preceding Denmark's Ellen Winther with "Vuggevise"). At the close of voting, it had received no points, placing last in a field of 16 (joint last place along with Spain's Victor Balaguer with "Llámame", the Netherlands' De Spelbrekers with "Katinka" and Belgium's Fud Leclerc with "Ton nom").

The song is the second Austrian entry in praise of Vienna (following closely on the heels of Der K und K Kalypso aus Wien). Schwarz sings about the magical quality of the wind in Vienna, which inspires the Waltz among other things.

The song was succeeded as Austrian representative at the 1963 Contest by Carmela Corren singing "Vielleicht geschieht ein Wunder".
