The Austrian Vacation Expert

I was born in Vienna, and have lived in and around the 'city with the best quality of life' (according to Mercer) for 30 years.

Now I frequently travel back to my beautiful home city. Since 2011, I've focused on helping travelers plan memorable trips to Vienna and the surrounding areas. Take advantage of my native perspective and lift the lid off Wien to discover new attractions, locations and insights that only the locals know.

In 2019, I was awarded Best Independent Central European Travel Planner by Lux Life in its Global Excellence Awards.

I absolutely love Vienna's lounge and electro music scene, as well as surprising family and friends with my latest discoveries in Vienna that they had no idea about.
