My way to Villach

Right after my engineering studies in my hometown Gotheborg, I joined the R&D department of a Swedish company that is part of the 3M group today. In 2011 I came to Villach to work as a product manager for roll grinding. At the present, I’m responsible for market development and travel around the world with Villach as my base. By now I have also found my private luck in Austria as I’m married to a Villach native.

That’s how I spend my time in Villach

The whole Alps-Adriatic region around Villach is a paradise for gourmets like me. I love to cook at home and I can get really amazing ingredients here in the region. But also when we decide to go out, there is a great culinary variety. Italy and Slovenia are just around the corner and the Austrian cuisine also offers a lot. Together with my husband I also enjoy the excellent location of the region. From here, you can reach mountains, the sea or various European cities in no time.

The greater Villach region with its broad culinary variety and offering great value for money is a gourmet’s paradise.

My tip for new arrivals in Villach

Learn the language! Organizations like the Carinthian International Club offer language courses all year round and talking to the locals in their mother tongue will help you feel at home in no time.
