A tabular datasets with ZIP codes at city level is available on the government's open data portal, but this dataset does not contain geo-coordinates, No dataset that meets the description of this survey appears to be publicly available at this point. Further observation: The Statistical Agency Austria holds related ZIP code data, also without coordinates. On the webpage of the Austrian Postal Service user can search for a postal code, but no geospatial information is provided. more info:

Reviewer comments

We were unable to identify if a geocoded postal code datasets exists within any governmental agency. Moreover, the datasets found had only city level post codes. We were unable to identify if the Austrian Post Service has city-district or street level post codes.
