Elisabeth Wolf, Managing Owner
"I love art, classical music, travel and nature. Quite simply, I am inspired by beautiful things. For many years, I found myself seeking a suitable vessel for such passion. Ideally, one in which there was also room for my love of my chosen profession, in the tourism industry. Then, in 2015, I found the solution - when I founded Artissimi, an agency which offers city tours, but not just any city tours. Which transforms Vienna and its surroundings into an artistic experience for cultured visitors and aesthetically-minded guests and locals instead. A space for children who love to be astonished, and adults seeking lasting impressions. The people I work with are a huge inspiration, every single contact can be enormously enriching!

I look back at years of experience in the international five star hotel and tourism industry. I planned many events with big success. Since 2012 I am an entrepreneur and a licenced guide for Austria in English, German and Italian. I am fluent in French. Since 2017 I hold a travel agency licence."

Lea Süss, Tour Assistant
Lea loves coffeehouses, ideally with a historical book in her hands, fashion and sports. She is keen in meeting inspiring people and attracted by politics and history. This is why she plans to study both subjects at the University of Vienna. She currently commutes between Munich and Vienna and is inspired by both cities.
Lea is part of the Artissimi team since September 2019 and can't wait to get to know the city even better by being on tour with Elisabeth.

Johanna Wallner, Tour Assistant
Johanna loves Travel, Vienna and Cafés! She supports Artissimi since March 2018.
Johanna studies European Ethnology and therefore is fascinated by history, art and culture. Especially during her travels around the world, she enjoys gathering knowledge about cultural environments which are new to her. Because of Johanna's experiences in living abroad, like the United States and Ecuador, as much as years of voluntary work in the field of Intercultural Learning, it is her desire to connect people of different nationalities through cultural exchange.

Claudia, our photographer loves Vienna, coffee and Nutella!
She is a native Austrian, who just returned back home from the United States, where she had started her family and got trained to be a professional photographer. She finds inspiration in travel, magazines and of course in walks through her favourite city, Vienna.
With her love for her craft and the people she photographs, she will freeze time for you and capture contemporary portraits, wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
We love when she joins our Artissimi tours, captures our special moments and highlights those so they become even more unforgettable! Come and take a look:  Maria Theresia and The Arts

Preferred Partner: Barbara Vrdlovec
Barbara loves art, words and interesting encounters. So it did not come as a surprise when after years of a successful career in Management consulting she decided to make more room for her passion for culture. With her activity as a Tour and Museum guide in Vienna she created a second of activities that allow her to combine her passions. With a lot of joy and enthusiasm she shares insights on the known and less known background stories to monuments and artifacts. One big source of energy and inspirations are her travels, often quite spontaneously triggered by an interesting exhibition opening.
Tour Guide: English, German, French and Italian
