Austrian-Greek relations are foreign relations between Austria and Greece. Both countries have diplomatic relations since the 19th century, after Greek independence. Greece has an embassy in Vienna and an honorary consulate in Salzburg. Austria has an embassy in Athens and six honorary consulates (in Heraklion, Ermoupolis, Corfu, Patras, Rhodes and Thessaloniki). Both countries are full members of the European Union. There is also a Greek community living in Austria.

In 2016, Greece summoned the Austrian ambassador to Athens and filed a formal protest with Austria over its decision to call a meeting of Balkan states on the European migrant crisis without including Greece, calling it an “non-friendly move”.[1]
