Jan is a true European cosmopolitan: born in 1988 to a polish family in Oslo, Norway, then educated in a French Lycée, and graduated from an English IB, he never truly belonged to one place. With an unending curiosity for cultures and history, Jan was inspired to study Art History at the University of Oslo. After graduating, Jan set out to explore Europe and experience all the fantastic art and architecture he had spent years studying. The best way to do this in a sustainable way was to become a guide. Between 2011 and 2016, Jan travelled and worked in almost all major tourist destinations in Europe, and America. In 2017, he moved permanently to Vienna and made the city his new home. Here he became an official state-licensed guide and has since then welcomed and shared Vienna’s great stories with thousands of people.
Born and raised in Vienna Katharina studied history and has been working as a guide since 2001 showing guests from all over the world the beauties and secrets of Vienna.
