Austria has participated in the Contest 50 times since its debut at the 1957 Contest. They have won twice: in 1996 with the song "Merci Chérie" by Udo Jürgens, and in 2014, with the song "Rise Like a Phoenix" by Conchita Wurst. The country currently holds the record for longest gap between wins, with 48 years between victories.

They have finished last in the final a total of seven times, in 1957, 1961, 1962, 1979, 1984, 1988 and 1991. The country also finished last in the semi-final in 2012. At the 2015 Contest on home soil, in a complete reversal of fortune, the country finished in last place with Nul Points. This made them the first-ever host nation to suffer this fate.
