Who we are

Connecting Cultures – Freundschaft verbindet is a project of an Austrian based charity that is run and supported by local Christians and churches across Austria.

We are a group of people who love meeting people from other cultures and enjoy helping them experience more than just their studies and work while in Austria. We are here to support international students, scholars and researchers by running a range of events and activities.

We believe that God loves us since “God is Love” [The Bible]. Further we trust that “God shows His love for the stranger (resident alien, foreigner) by giving him food and clothing” [The Bible].

Connecting Cultures – Freundschaft verbindet staff and volunteers are all Christians. Our hope is to share God’s love with all international students, scholars and researchers in Austria. We offer friendship, community and services to all internationals, no matter what you believe, where you are from or what your faith background may be.

We love talking about our faith with anyone who is interested and when asked, take the opportunity to share the Christian roots of the Austrian culture by explaining the Christian message – this is always within the context of respect for the diversity of backgrounds and beliefs held by all internationals we meet. We want to offer internationals in Austria the chance to investigate what Christians believe.
