According to the Indian Embassy at present 4800 people from India live in Austria. Among them are approximately 1000 Hindus. Most of the Hindus live in Vienna. Hinduism does not belong to the religious communities -- like Islam or Buddhism -- which are acknowledged by the Austrian State. Therefore Hindu children, who visit Austrian schools, are registered with the notice "no religion." In Austria Hindus represent a very small minority. Nevertheless several institutions and organisations are occupied with Hindu-Christian dialogue in quite different ways.
