Let us introduce you to our sickeningly beautiful and talented family of regular contributors. We love them all!
Grew up in the deepest depths of lower Austria. Studied spatial planning in Vienna. Lives again in the deepest depths of lower Austria with his family. Works in Vienna on Urban Renewal and City Planning. Still loves this city and being a stray dog there on weekdays. Also loves relaxing in the countryside on evenings and weekends. Amateur photographer. Takes photos of clouds, his provincial life, old stuff and buildings – and, of course, Vienna. Smokes only Würstel.
Restless in summer and lazy in winter. Being an anthropologist, she lives and breathes for travelling to remote places. Loves listening in on peoples’ conversations and making up stories about strangers. Finds Vienna to be the perfect place for doing that. Has been spotted talking to pans. Extremely happy when presented with the perfect fried egg.
A snob with a heart of gold. Lived in Vienna for a total of 14 years. Spent most of her life as a diplobrat. Has access to the finer things of life. An Austrian husband. She's Canadian. A mother to a precocious and adorable toddler son; she plays the role of overbearing Jewish mother well. When Tova isn’t spending her time licking a wine glass, she can be found in front of her laptop, clicking through celebrity pictures and writing in her blog: operationtubetop.blogspot.co.at
Born and raised in slow-paced Carinthia, he had trouble finding his way in the big city at first. But, after spending an entire summer hunting for an apartment on his skateboard, he started to understand the beautiful and complex organism that is Vienna. His love affair with the city has grown ever since. Includes having made David Hasselhoff laugh amongst his biggest achievements. Suffers from chronic würstel vision.
The resident Käsekrainer connoisseur. A night out on the town is not complete without one. Originally from the Netherlands, he’s grown to love Vienna since moving here early 2015. Loves hot summers, snowy winters in the mountains, and a good, bad joke. Being a beer fan, you’ll usually find his name atop articles about bars. Likes airplanes.
A Brit’ conquering Vienna on a bike, one street at a time. Living vicariously through himself. Will go to any lengths to tell a good story. Doesn’t eat würstels, but was slapped in the face with one once. More of a Langos man at 4am, regardless of the consequences. Has written for other travel guides, such as Spotted by the Locals. Has seen shit, man.
Part-time writer of wrongs. Loves a good pun and curly hair. Mysteriously starts speaking like a gangster when nervous. A Transylvanian with rather sharp teeth. Trained in the dark arts of marketing, and also specialised in innovation and trends. Obsessive soup slurper. Is convinced world evils could be solved over a bowl of soup. Believes in great creative work and in a better world.
The Würstelstand video editor. Big music fan. Travels to eat, doesn't eat to travel. From the Eastern block and the land of Trifon Ivanon (google him if you don't know him – well worth it). Once was a social worker and once lived in Iceland. Used to spend all of his school pocket money on pirate cassette tapes during the 90's. When he was a kid, he dreamed of growing up and earning enough money to buy lots of bananas. Now I want mangoes and don’t even like bananas. You’ll often find him smelling and feeling up mangoes around the markets of Vienna.
