After completing a degree in business economy at the university of Innsbruck I started my career at a large German travel agency in Southern Germany. To gain international experience I then worked in key accounts at a large airline in New York City.

Back in my home region South Tyrol I managed a large skiing area, and following that I was employed as managing director in a leading British incoming agency. In April 2002 I returned to Munich to found and establish APPINA TRAVEL together with Uli Gerstmeier. I am married and have two sons.

I completed a Master degree of history and theology in Tübingen. While studying I spent 15 months at the university in Rome where I also worked as city and travel guide. After my university studies I worked with a large agency for package travel. Following this, I transferred to Berlin where I helped establish an incoming agency in the position of general manager.

After working for a few more years with another agency for package travel Luis Lintner and I founded APPINA TRAVEL GmbH in March 2002. I am married and have a son and a daughter. Additionally I give lectures on innovative product design for group tours at the FH Kempten.

My passion for travelling led me to work in the tourism industry. During my studies of Tourism Management at the University of Applied Science HS Harz, I gained practical experience working in the hotel industry and at tour-operators, as well as at APPINA TRAVEL.

I broadened my knowledge with studies of Tourism and Destination Development and obtained a Master’s degree. Since July 2011, I am part of APPINA TRAVEL and I am glad to assist you with organising your trips.

Foreign countries and cultures have fascinated me from my earliest days. Saxon Switzerland, my home, is a beautiful tourism region and has influenced me in choosing challenging tourism as my industry. My first work experiences together with my professional training I gained in an Online Travel Agency in Leipzig and after completion I decided to join APPINA TRAVEL in their Dresden office in September 2015. I am looking forward to support your travel plannings to Germany in any way.

After studying business in the field of tourism and my successful graduation I spent several years in different countries and cultures. The most defining periods were definitely in Peru and Sweden. In the Peruvian capital Lima I worked 1 year for an incoming agency and in Stockholm almost 2 years also for a well-known DMC for group travel. Due to this international experience I speak fluent English, good Spanish and basic Swedish.
Since January 2019 I am part of the APPINA TRAVEL team and I am very glad to support your group enquiries for journeys within the beautiful and fascinating European countries in the best possible way.

I grew up in Germany and chose a career in the Travel Industry right after finishing school. I have extensive experience in various roles (Travel Agency, Tour Operator, Flight Consolidator, Business to Business Travel Sales), not only in Germany, but also worked in the Tourism Industry after I immigrated to the US. I feel fortunate to know and understand both cultures and how they relate to Tourism. Travel and Tourism is truly my passion. I travelled extensively in Europe and other countries and am very excited to be able to work with APPINA Travel so I can continue to spread my passion for Europe and Travel.

Vacation time and discovering new places is the best time of the year for me. That is the reason why I turned my passion into my career. I studied tourism management at the University of Cooperative Education in Breitenbrunn, Saxony. During my periodic internships, I sold holiday packages in a travel agency. After graduation, I wanted to further my knowledge within the organization of holiday trips and wanted to have the chance to be more creative in my work.
Since October 2019 I am part of APPINA TRAVEL and I am looking forward to offering you my support on planning your next trip.
