"I have always loved the arts, classical music, travel and nature. Put simply, I am inspired by beautiful things. For many years, I found myself seeking a suitable focus for these personal passions - ideally, one also offering a tangible connection with my chosen field of expertise, the tourism industry.
In 2015 I realised I had found the solution, when I founded Artissimi, a very new kind of agency. Artissimi was designed to offer luxury city tours, high-end cultural experiences which transform Vienna and its surroundings into an aesthetic, living stage for its most sophisticated guests and cultured locals. It creates a space for children who love to be astonished, and adults seeking luxury impressions that will last a lifetime. Every single contact I have enjoyed through Artissimi has been enormously enriching.
I can look back with pride upon many years of experience in the international five-star hotel and tourism sector. I have planned a maltitude of luxury events over the years, with great success. I have been an entrepreneur and guide for Austria since 2012, licenced to provide my exclusive cultural experience not just in German, but also in English and Italian. I am also fluent in French, and have held a travel agency licence since 2017."
