A lot depends of where in Germany you have lived before. If you have been in banking in Frankfurt, the pace will seem slow in Vienna.

The standard of life is very good in both places. Outside of Vienna, you might struggle if you don't speak the language, but at the same time, local communities are friendlier than big cities.

Wherever one lives, the more you make of it and the more actively you engage with your surroundings, the more you get out of it. Vienna can be a bit stuffy, and it can be difficult breaking the ice, but it is possible to settle down and fit in here.
Vienna is like an Ikea sofa - you know you should upgrade, but why bother when it is this comfortable.

I found Germans could be a bit on the stingy side while Austrians are more ready to spend money on something they think is worth it.
