Being in a non-english speaking country can be pretty overwhelming, but once you know what signs to look out for it gets a little easier!

Sign by the skating rink in front of the Rathausplatz.

LGBT+ friendly street lamps for the crosswalks in the first district.

A little German irony for this torn away sign ("Don't pay attention to me!").

The digital sign that tells you how long until your tram gets here (and it's hopefully a short wait if you're running late to class!)

Another classic Austrian sign, one for each tram stop. Everyone has their favorite stop that they try to plan trips around.
