Visiting Vienna is a project of the heart; an excuse to write about the city I’ve lived in since 1994, but also a way to help those in Vienna (or considering visiting) with advice and tips on how to get the most out of their stay.
Something like 2 million people now drop by the website each year.
I write every article and do so using my local knowledge and research, including visits to (almost) every single sight, event or location: I sometimes miss the occasional exhibition or event, because the day only has 24 hours and I get distracted by coffee and cake.
You can follow me on Instagram, where I recently started posting impressions of Vienna and other images pulled from my wanderings, mostly captioned from my imagination. The pictures tend to be more offbeat than your typical tourism account, though.
For the record, this is me about to enter the Kunsthistorisches Museum to recheck my notes on the Egyptian collection, which makes me sound way more sophisticated than is the case:
(In the interests of full disclosure, I’ve since grown a beard and added a
bit lot of grey hair)
The “me” in all this is a British-born novelist, accredited journalist (ÖJC #018050) and sometimes external university lecturer. I own the site and write all the content.
Before contacting me, please note the following to possibly save yourself some time and effort:
- I’m just one guy and not an official representative of tourism in Vienna: these fine people are
- I do not publish guest posts, third-party content, sponsored posts, and similar. Due to a lack of time, I have to ignore any requests for me to do so
- I don’t wish to buy any Vienna-related domain names and ignore all emails trying to sell them to me
