My name is Peter Heuritsch, I am your personal guide in Vienna or to the most beautiful regions of Austria like Lower Austria, Salzburg or Tyrol..
My very special aspiration as an ambition in my profession as a state-certified tourist guide is to realise this profession primarily as a cultural mediator and as a cultural ambassador.
In addition, I want to convey especially one thing:
The typical "savoir vivre" of Vienna, the very special Viennese way of life !!
I want to tell the stories behind history in addition to and beyond the historical facts. From my point of view this is the best way to learn to know the true Vienna.
I was born in Vienna and grew up in the 3rd District.
My school years I spent in Krems, the gateway to the Wachau Valley, and I graduated at the local Piaristengymnasium. I also spent a long period of my life in the Salzkammergut (in the region of Salzburg). My long-term center of life is again Vienna.
I studied law at the University of Vienna. Immediately after University I started my own business as an art and antique dealer and gallery owner. My gallery and my art shop was located in Krems. I participated many years as an exhibitor in the prestigious Austrian Art Fairs in Vienna and Salzburg.
About 25 years in the arts and cultural sector have been followed by years as an entrepreneur in Vienna in the field of financial consulting and communication training.
Now I go back to my old love - the world of art and culture. And I am very pleased to be able to inspire all of my guests and friends with my passion for the finer things in life.
