For us Graz is the most adorable city in the world and so wonderful to live in. It offers on one hand the perfect infrastructure of a big city but at the same time it is still like a little village. It is perfectly summarized by a quote from Hanns Koren, founder of the steirischer herbst festival - ‘Graz is small enough to meet anyone you would like to meet. And big enough to avoid those you don't want to see.

I was born and raised in my native city of Graz. I particularly like the  city because it is so family-friendly. When our four children were younger, we enjoyed the many green parks in the city. The  attractive surrounding area adds to a high quality of living. Now with four almost grown-up children we take advantage of the cultural and sporting activities Graz has to offer.

This city is even beautiful when it's raining! It is my aim to be a super guide, showing visitors why I like these old buildings so much, the fine art in the city and the people living here. After you have had a tour, Salzburg, with its very special character, should feel like yours too. I hope you will wish to come back next year!

When I took over the Cafe Kröll from my mother five years ago, I knew I had to develop a new  product and new ideas. That creative process led to the Strudel Café which serves a myriad of sweet and savoury strudels. Using only regional and seasonal  products, we have become one of the ‘in' places to go in Innsbruck. I love the urban-alpine lifestyle which makes this city so special - mountains, city and lots of sports!

Owner, SʼCulinarium
In S'Culinarium, we serve 300 different flavours of brandy and liquors, Austrian ice wines, and many other culinary delights. I came to Innsbruck on a holiday 45 years ago from Vienna and I never left! The quality of life in this city is second to none. I shower in mineral water - it really is that clean - have fantastic mountains surrounding me, culture, nature and sports. What more could I possibly want?
