Vienna is the new home of Cathleen Behrends, our local scout. During her seventeen years in the international financial industry she visited almost all European capital and financial cities, lived for eight years in Istanbul and sharpened her eye for unusual ambience, creative cuisine and exceptional localities. Since 2010 she has been working as a freelance coach and will now also share her favorite spots in the Austrian metropolis with our readers. With her personal touch she wants to inspire and surprise the many visitors of Vienna as much as the long-established locals. With curiousness and open-mindedness she roams through the cities’ streets and alleys always looking for hidden treasures, surprising new discoveries or well-recognized traditional highlights, and in any case exceptionally pleasant items and places.
