What are Austrian Men Like?
I’m sure you all want to know as much info as possible about Austrian guys, right? Well, lucky for you, as an international dating expert that I am, I’m going to share with you everything I know about them and give you some useful Austrian men dating tips.
It’s a common mistake to mix Austrian and German men since they can be similar not only for looks but for their personality traits as well. However, there are some differences among Austrian guys that we are about to crack into!
Although generalization of any kind is never a good idea, let’s be honest, everyone here wants to know what typical Austrian guys are like. Let your dear Amy reveal you all – the good, the bad, where to meet Austrian men, and how to seduce them!
When describing typical Austrian men, a lot of people would think that similarly to Germans, all of them are pale, have blond or reddish hair and blue eyes. While there’s some truth to it, you can easily find dark-haired Austrians that look nothing like their neighbors.
Although the vast majority of them do remind a lot of German men, your Austrian boyfriend won’t really like the comparison nor Austrian guy stereotypes for that matter.
Hot Austrian men aren’t hard to find. Austrians are considered very attractive since the majority of them are very tall and slim, thanks to their love for sports and physical activities.
Being in great shape is very important for them even though they do like to eat and drink beer. Since they spend a lot of time at work, they try to stay fit by going to the gym after work or during weekends, and it’s clearly working for them!
Their dreamy blue eyes and chiseled, masculine jawline are the reason why girls all around the world go crazy about them. If you ask me, they can be really hard to resist! Especially if you find it cute when guys are shy.
The money boosts their security, and that’s why that energy makes them more aware of their attractiveness. Therefore – the more money they have, the more confident they are.
So, as you can see, I didn’t have any trouble finding handsome Austrian men, and I’m sure you won’t either because they really are a good-looking nation.
If one thing’s certain about Austrian men, it’s that they like being comfortable. Their laid-back attitude is manifested in their fashion style, too.
Even though they choose to dress comfortably, this doesn’t mean that they don’t have style, on the contrary. Starting from the business attire to casual outfits, they show great elegance and old-school style that makes them even more attractive.
Polished and clean, they take pride in always having great hair and neat beard. Being serious as they are, you’ll rarely find them looking sloppy and childish.
Contrary to Korean men, grown Austrians in hipster outfits and ripped jeans are almost impossible to see. They prefer comfy, yet elegant pants and a simple shirt and shoes. A good colon is a must for every Austrian guy.
Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating
On top of the important physical trait ratings for Austrian men, we have also created our own additional rating from the Austrian men we see on Tinder. We call it the 1,000 Tinder swipe rating. It is extremely accurate and gives a very good overall picture of the single men and how attractive they are.
This is how it works.
We swiped through 1000 different profiles in all of the major cities of Austria and took note of how many handsome men there are. We jotted down how many 8’s, 9’s and 10’s there are based on their profile pictures. Here is a quick breakdown.
- 0-100 is poor
- 100-200 is OK
- 200-300 is Good
- 300 – 400 Is Incredible
- 400 + is Mindblowing (There are only a few of these)
With a Tinder Plus subscription, you can teleport to anywhere in the world and swipe for yourself. Find out more below In the section about how to meet Austrian men. Also, make sure to check out my other country guides to see how their Tinder scores compare.
Character Traits that Make Austrian Men Stand Out
Every nation has its own traits, and that’s why I really love international dating! It’s always fun to break down the stereotypes while having fun with attractive guys!
Keeping in mind that there are many exceptions, we can mention some of the characteristics that the majority of sexy Austrian men have.
I’ve gathered my thoughts, taken into consideration my and my girlfriends’ experience, and decided to share the following for all of you who are interested in dating Austrian guys.
1. Gentlemen rating
Although even hot Austrian guys are shy when it comes to flirting and making the first step, you can expect nothing but the perfect behavior during the dates.
I was so surprised when I had my first ever experience with dating an Austrian guy because I didn’t expect him to be that gallant and thoughtful. I received super-nice flowers and chocolate and had the most fantastic time during dinner that he generously offered to pay.
I immediately started comparing Austrians to Brazilians because they are so different! While my dates with Brazilian men were everything but old-school gallantry, dating an Austrian was delightful; during each date, I felt special and taken care of.
All Austrian men I’ve dated held the door for me and helped me when putting on my coat. I was pleasantly surprised by their politeness and good manners.
If you’ve ever wondered, “what are Austrian men like in relationships?”, you can rest assured that every date you have will be fairytale-like when it comes to manners, romance, and displays of affection even when you’re out in public.
Don’t be scared by the first impression of their shyness, as soon as you give them a chance to get to know them, they will want to reach the stars for you and make you feel like a princess.
Being Germany’s neighbor does come with some difficulties. I notice that Austrian people (men especially) really dislike being compared to Germans or even mistaken for them.
They often emphasize that Austrians are much better than their neighbors, and they pride in their nationality, which can come across a bit aggressive and arrogant sometimes.
Keep in mind this when you meet Austrian men because they usually get easily offended when mistaken for a German or asked about their connection.
However, even though bold with words and attitudes, Austrians don’t hate foreigners, they are just proud of being Austrians.
The good thing about Austrian nationalism is that they are always open to constructive criticism, and they’re ready to talk about all the issues that are relevant and can be solved or improved.
Even though Austrians are shy and confused when it comes to flirting, once you break down that barrier, you can expect nothing but total loyalty.
If we compare them again with Brazilians (as well as Italians), they do have a completely different approach to meeting and seducing women. While Brazilian and Italian guys aren’t shy when hitting on women, they are rarely loyal and get bored very easily.
Austrians, however, will stay with the woman they love and help around the home and kids. Even though they may seem conservative, they do help around the house and pride in investing a lot of time and money into the housework.
I’ve noticed that Austrian men don’t have a problem displaying attention in public places, which makes them super-adorable and shows another aspect of their loyalty.
You won’t even have to worry about what Austrian guys in bed are like because you can rest assured that your partner will be a gentle and caring lover that will show his appreciation and loyalty even in the bedroom.
From what I hear, once you’re married and have kids, divorce is unlikely to happen. Three of my friends are married in Austria, and they say that their husbands are very involved in everything that has to do with kids and family life.
Although they may seem obsessed with work, family comes first for Austrian guys.
When you meet Austrian guys, the first thing you notice is that they are brutally honest no matter what. While it’s true that this can be a bit scary sometimes, it’s a nice thing to have someone who’ll always say what’s on his mind.
Honesty is a rare quality these days, and we all need a person who’d tell us the truth no matter how ugly it may be. This also shows their loyalty, and it’s probably the reason why single Austrian men are so desirable for long-term relationships.
I remember going out with one of my Austrian friends and asking him if he liked my new hair color after just going back from the hairdresser, all happy with my new trendy hairstyle. He didn’t like it at all and wasn’t shy to tell it right away!
Even though I felt a bit sad, I had to appreciate the honesty.
5. How protective they are?
Having in mind that family comes first for Austrian guys, they are usually very protective of their loved ones. Even though they take interest and help around the house chores, their mentality is still a bit conservative, at least compared to the Scandinavian guys.
This means that Austrians feel the urge to be the protector of home since they are raised with the belief that men should be strong and take care of their families both from the economic aspect and the protective one.
Even if you’re a friend with an Austrian guy, they will act as if they are your brother/father. I noticed that, from that aspect, they are similar to Italians as they can be very protective, sometimes even too much.
6. Are they resourceful?
If one thing’s certain about Austrians, it’s that they can really be workaholics. Austrians love the financial stability that money provides, and that’s why they care about their jobs very much.
I was so surprised to see how much the job gives them a sense of purpose and how they all function like a well-oiled machine.
Being devoted to the family as they are, Austrian guys work so hard to provide their wives and kids with everything they need for a normal life without struggles. If that means working more than 8 hours a day, so be it.
Being so impressed by their work ethic and need to have enough money before starting a family, I’ve done some research. I realized that lately, Austrian men stay single even after 30 years old until they feel like they have more than enough resources to raise a family.
I don’t know about you, but for me, a man (and a woman, of course) who knows how to take care of his (her) family and provide enough for a decent life can be considered very mature.
And really, all the Austrian boyfriends that I had were very responsible adults that show a lot of maturity in almost every aspect of their life.
The only reason why I gave a 9 instead of 10 is the already mentioned fact that they don’t start a family before earning the amount of money they consider enough.
I’m not saying this is an irresponsible thing, on the contrary. Still, I can’t help but feel that they’re using the financial part as an excuse to start a family later, which may sometimes be understood as the lack of maturity in that sense.
Even though Austrians are generally good looking, they are timid and don’t have the confidence to flirt and seduce women. I don’t have a precise explanation for that because it seems that they don’t even think about the self-confidence in the way the Americans do.
An Austrian guy usually feels confident when having enough cash in his pocket and doesn’t have to worry about providing enough money for his family.
Single Austrian guys are unlikely to approach you unless you give them the encouragement to do so. If you notice an Austrian you like, don’t be shy to show you’re interested because you probably won’t meet him if you don’t take the initiative.
9. Are they friendly or reserved?
If you ask a complete stranger “What are Austrian guys like?” he/she will probably say “cold, reserved and uninterested,” which is true to a certain level. Becoming a really good friend with an Austrian is very challenging.
Even though they are well-mannered and friendly towards everyone, they don’t tend to share details about their private life even after knowing you for a long time.
To me, it seems that they are a bit scared of sharing personal stuff and being judged or misunderstood.
I usually like to compare them to the friendly and cordial nations (and guys!) such as Greeks, Serbs, and other Balcan countries. In my opinion, it’s the only thing that’s missing for Austrian guys to be perfect, which is a shame.
However, once you earn his trust, your Austrian sweetheart will open up and let you inside his head more easily.
The stunning picturesque mountains and lush green pine forests of Austria beautifully complements the gorgeously handsome men in that country.
Don’t take the movie, Sound of Music, for its word, just one trip to any part of Austria will convince you that the men are indeed special. They are as rugged as the rolling mountains and as soft as the flowing streams.
These gentlemen of valor sure know how to treat a woman right, spoiling them with gifts and awesome moments to cherish for a long time.
But is that all that makes Austrian men tick; do they have any drawback ladies need to watch out for?

Pros and Cons of Dating an Austrian Man
As with any nationality, Austrian guys have their own dating pros and cons that can be of big help for American women looking for Austrian men. Let’s check them out so that you more or less know what’s like dating Austrian men!
1. They enjoy outdoor activities
In a country as beautiful as Austria, it’s no wonder why the residents love spending time outdoors. Austrian guys adore sports and use every free moment to hike, ski, ride a bike, or do any other activity that involves being outside.
Fantastic parks, impressive mountains, and an abundance of lakes and rivers make Austria a heavenly place for outdoor activities, and your Austrian babe will want to explore these beauties with you!
This also means that, since being physically active, Austrian men stay fit and youthful even when they get older. Sexy Austrian guys stay sexy for a really long time!
2. Gentle lovers
Austrian men in bed tend to be really gentle, and they prefer communicating with you to learn what you like/dislike.
Your Austrian lover will want to please you every time, and he won’t put himself first but will want to have an equally pleasant experience.
This is probably the reason why they are known to be one of the best lovers in the world. Expect from your partner to be up to experimenting and trying out new things.
3. You can rely on him always
If you’re lucky enough to meet a sexy Austrian and have him be your boyfriend, you can expect the utmost support whenever you need it.
Earning enough to provide a more than a decent life for your family, living with an Austrian is rarely stressful when it comes to finances.
You’ll always have unconditional support with house chores, your dreams, carrier as well as kids because Austrians are very responsible guys that will be your equal partner in all aspects of life.
1. He’ll probably be a smoker
Enjoying international dating means being able to accept other culture’s differences and habits. When it comes to Austrians, one of their worst habits is smoking.
I have to mention my first date with an Austrian guy here as well. Even though a perfect gentleman (as I previously described), he smoked sooo much that my hair was so smelly after every date!
This isn’t very attractive, but the majority of them will try to cut back if you tell them you don’t appreciate the smoking.
2. They may drink too much
Austrians sure like their beer. While they usually avoid drinking during the week because of their productivity at work, a lot of Austrians can’t wait for the weekend so that they can unwind and enjoy their favorite alcoholic beverages.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that every Austrian guy has alcohol problems. Still, they most definitely love to have a class or two.
Where to Meet Austrian Men
Even if you happen to be in Austria, meeting Austrian men in a bar may seem difficult because of their shyness, unless you don’t mind making the first step.
Also, the situation becomes even more challenging if you’re in America and wondering how to meet Austrian men even without visiting Austria.
The good thing is that we are in the digital era, which means that you’ll easily meet your Austrian sweetheart using the numerous dating sites and apps.
Other than Instagram and Facebook, I suggest http://austrianfriendsdate.com/ because I’ve used it for quite some time, and I guarantee it’s the best dating site out there for meeting Austrians.
What’s great about this dating site is that it’s completely free. You don’t have to pay for any feature. Meet and chat with Austrians all over the world, and don’t worry about your wallet thanks to this convenient dating site.
How to Conquer an Austrian Man’s Heart
Now that you know where and how to meet an Austrian guy, these Austrian guy dating tips wouldn’t be complete without learning about how to conquer his heart.
1. Be patient
Since Austrians need more time to open up, your guy will appreciate it if you’re patient with him. He’ll start sharing every thought with you eventually just as long as you’re not pushy.
2. Be active
Being a lover of outdoor activities, your Austrian babe will enjoy very much if you shared the same passion for hiking, skiing, sports, and being outdoors in general.
Join him in the gym after work, exercise together, and you’ll have his heart in no time.
3. Show that you care about your career
Financial stability is important for Austrians, and since they are hardworking, ambitious individuals themselves, they usually expect the same from their partner.
4. Be honest
Brutal honesty is the best policy, even when it comes to Austrians. Don’t avoid expressing your 100% honest opinion about everything, and he’ll appreciate you even more.
