Austria guide and art historian Gertraud Kamml

Art and culture are my passion

I love my hometown of Salzburg and I am thrilled to be able to live here.

Stefan Zweig wrote the following about Salzburg:

„Salzburg, where I feel wonderfully at home, profoundly blissful. The days are longer here, life is more real – all feelings more vivid."

It is a particular joy for me to be able to share this passion with others.

About me...

I was born on 10th December 1963 in Lofer, at the foot of the “Loferer Steinberge”.
I grew up in Unken; a little village on the border with Bavaria.
In these rural surroundings, I spent a lot of time with my friends in the great outdoors, and I remain very connected to nature to this day.  

In 1978, my path led me to Siezenheim, near Salzburg, to attend the Höhere Lehranstalt für Fremdenverkehrsberufe (academy of tourism professions) in Klessheim.

My life takes an exciting turn!

I completed my mandatory internship in the Hotel Hubertus in Lofer.
From there, I went to Montreux, on Lake Geneva, to practice my French.
There, I took my first job in tourism management at the Unken tourist information office.
The city transport office on Salzburg's Mozartplatz provided me with truly international experience.

Then, the Lioret family warmly welcomed me into their home in St. Cloud, Paris, near the Bois de Boulogne, as an au pair.
The children, Astrid and Sonia, grew very close to my heart, as did the French language.
Attending Alliance Française was the perfect way to expand my language skills after four years of school French.

In Paris, I discovered my passion for art and culture, which I was able to indulge unchecked.
This passion has stayed with me to this day.

On April 1st 1989, my husband, Wolfgang-Josef Kamml, and I started our own family in Siezenheim near Salzburg.
Together, we managed the Gasthof Kamml until 2012.

In March 2013, I fulfilled a long-held wish and commenced my studies in art history at Paris Lodron University of Salzburg. After my educational and enjoyable years as a student, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in January 2017.

It has been a great pleasure to complete my two years of training as an Austria guide, which I concluded in July 2021 with my final examination.

Still have questions?

I would be happy to hear from you if you have any questions!

I look forward to meeting you:
