Who we are:

The ‘MieterInnen-Initiative’ is a small independent tenants union based in Vienna, Austria. We provide information and support for tenants in all aspects regarding housing rights/housing law. We  strictly defend tenants interests on an individual as well as collective level.  We are open to people who want to support and join our struggle for the right to housing!
