About

Hello, I am Katharina.

I am an Art Historian and licensed Tour Guide in Vienna, Austria. Together with a network of local specialists I create private tours and personalized itineraries for your visit to Vienna and its surroundings.

I was born in the early eighties in a family of three generations Viennese. I think being Viennese is to have quite a multiculturally coined background, as Vienna is historically a city with many influences. Not so long ago it was the capital of the 50 million multiethnical Habsburg empire. And I think, its diversity is where the strength of the city always lay. Thankfully today Vienna is again in the heart of a modern Europe, where so many cultural influences come together.

Having grown up in the tidy bourgeois viennese neighborhood of Hietzing, my curiosity drove me to study and work abroad. I worked in London where I visited each and every art museum I could find and traced a bit my own family history (having a London born father).
My arthistorical studies led me to Rome, one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to and I am still deeply involve with. In Amsterdam, I was giving tours through the Rijks- and Van Gogh Museum and worked closely connected with the contemporary art scene there.

Coming with my own family back to my hometown, I decided to bring together two things I deeply care about: people and artistic expression and provide good tours with local knowldge for the curious traveller.

I know Vienna inside out, the places to visit, the palaces to marvel at, the art collections not to be missed, the best restaurants and the finest bars, and also the contemporary edge to this city which makes it today one of the best places to live in. Between all this elegant architecture some of the most dramatic developments of mankind took place. Let me tell you about that as well.

I’ll be happy to show you around!

Yours,

Katharina
