|Description||Van der Bellen elected president
The Freedom Party candidate said on his Facebook page (in German): "Please don't be disheartened. The effort in this election campaign is not wasted, but is an investment for the future."
'Relief'The interior ministry said Mr Van der Bellen had won 2,254,484 votes to Mr Hofer's 2,223,458, or 50.3% to 49.7%.
Although Mr Van der Bellen, 72, is officially independent, he led Austria's Greens for a decade and some European Green politicians were hailing him as the world's first elected Green head of state.
Speaking after his victory, he said he accepted many Austrians had different views and that some people were angry, but he added: "People can be different and still treat each other imitation earrings bulgari respectfully."
The rhetoric in the campaign had been fierce at times. Mr Van der Bellen had said he did not want Austria to be led by a "populist right wing, pan Germanic fraternity member" and even urged voters "who don't like me but perhaps like Hofer even less to vote for me".
Mr imitation bvlgari mother of pearl earrings Hofer had been photographed sporting the German colours of the nationalist Marko Germania student fraternity, which stands for "the German cultural community" and bears the slogan "Honour, Freedom, Fatherland".
At his swearing in as Freedom Party candidate, Mr Hofer wore a cornflower in his lapel, which was a Nazi symbol in the 1930s.
Freedom Party campaign manager, Herbert Kickl, hailed Mr Hofer's performance, saying: "There are many Norbert Hofers in the Freedom Party and we are very, very well placed for parliamentary elections."
France's far right National Front said: "This historic performance is certainly the precursor of future success for all patriotic movements, both in Austria fake bulgari diva earrings and around fake bvlgari b zero earrings the world."
But French PM Manuel Valls said in a Twitter post: "It's a relief to see the Austrians reject populism and extremism. Everyone in Europe must draw lessons from this."
Analysis: Jenny Hill, BBC News, PinkafeldWhile he awaited the result, the man who could have become the EU's first far right leader mowed his lawn. I met Norbert Hofer in his hometown about an hour's drive from Vienna. We chatted at his garden gate he was still perched on his ride on lawnmower.
These elections, he said, would go down in history. And, he told me, whoever won would have to work to unite this country.
Perhaps he's right. The election has split Austria and exposed, once again, deep divisions in Europe how to deal with the migrant crisis, the economy and how to balance national interests against those of the EU.
And what's characterised this vote widespread disillusionment with the political mainstream and growing support for Mr Hofer's far right Freedom Party is reflected across a growing number of European countries.
