I'll add more tommorow but I need a break. Falphin 02:21, 28 May 2005 (UTC)


Some former separate articles were merged into this one. I cant see the purpose, it makes proper categorization of the subjects impossible and deters from additions, especially images. 11:27:28, 2005-08-30 (UTC)

Cleanup markers[edit]

The article does not describe Austrian culture in a proper way. It should either be expanded _a lot_ or deleted (or split into several appropriate articles).

The section about education does not explain the Austrian education system properly, it is unclear and even partly wrong (especially the part about Hauptschule). It also needs copy editing, as I indicated. The other sections (especially art, but also architecture, literature and everything else) are too short to be informative, they leave out a lot of Austrian culture.

Really, why was this article written? I am only trying to work on a project, I was expecting some' information...

It's clear that the article is a hodgepodge of little articles that were thrown together. Maybe some of the articles on other European (or world) cultures could be used as a framework for the rewrite.
As time permits, I'll look at some of the articles linked via the template at the bottom of the article page. Maybe they'll offer inspiration. I encourage you -- whoever is interested enough to read this page -- to go ahead and do the same.
The AEIOU website under "External links" is likely to be very helpful. Ten gigabytes of data on Austrian culture, or so they say. -- Rob C (Alarob) 15:28, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Yea, unfortunately I have to agree with you, as I strongly contributed to the corresponding article de:Österreichische Kultur in the germanspeaking Wikipedia which is a lot richer. This article here needs a lot of work, so maybe someone with English as mother language and who can properly understand german wants to translate it here? *blink* -- Rfortner 22:36, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

i do not think the page needs to be rewriten. however my opinon does not compare to the opinons of the millions of people in the world. even so, i think the page should be formated in a different way... :P —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:21, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Public holidays[edit]

Public holidays in Austria was redirected to this page in 2005. I think it makes sense to include the list here, but it might fit better into an article of its own. --Austrian (talk) 12:28, 2 April 2008 (UTC)


Is not is largely German influenced because they are ethnically German?Ovsek (talk) 06:01, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Mozart instead of Beethoven[edit]

Yes, Beethoven lived and worked for a very long time in Vienna - but he was born in Bonn. I'd rather say that Mozart would be proper representative on the top of the page - as the Salzburg festival was born out of Austria's desire to honor it's greatest genius.--Meister und Margarita (talk) 21:04, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
