My way to Villach

My wife and I wanted to live in Austria with our two children; the amazing mountain scenery here in the south had already convinced us during various vacations. I had no concrete job offer but nevertheless we moved to Carinthia in 2011. After some temporary jobs, I started work as an engineering draftsman at Flowserve and in 2013 we finally moved into the immediate neighborhood of Villach.



That’s how I spend my time in Villach

My two sons love sports and so we spend a lot of active time in the outdoors. Our younger son is, for example, a member of a ski club and so we usually hit the slopes of the glacier already in October. We all like skiing and in winter we accompany him from one skiing resort to the next. In summer we are always on tour with our bikes, go camping, hiking or climbing. Moreover, I play the tuba in the local traditional band and apart from the weekly rehearsals there are regular concerts throughout the whole region.

My three favorite spots in the region

Mountains, mountains, mountains ;-)

For example the Dobratsch for hiking in summer or the Goldeck for skiing in winter.
