"Venedig im Regen" (English translation: "Venice In The Rain") was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1991, performed in German by Thomas Forstner.

The song was performed sixth on the night (following Switzerland's Sandra Simo with "Canzone per te" and preceding Luxembourg's Sarah Bray with "Un baiser volé"). At the close of voting, it had received the dreaded nul points, placing 22nd (last) in a field of 22.

The song is a ballad, with Forstner singing about a chance sighting of a beautiful woman on a rainy day in Venice.

The song was succeeded as Austrian representative at the 1992 Contest by Tony Wegas singing "Zusammen geh'n".
