German abstract:
Continually evolving and adapting to ever-new demands for decades, Viennese social housing provision has

city enjoys low rent levels at high quality standards and little social segregation. Today, however, Vienna's

housing system has established sophisticated means of promoting its various undertakings and achievements to
the city and its inhabitants. An array of publications serves to inspire confidence and drown critical voices. The
latter have become increasingly alarmist concerning the issue of housing expenses and have created an uneasy
gap between the official depiction and the critical perception of Viennese
