About Stephanie Rank

I'm Stephanie, born in 1982, and I'm a passionate host. Here in the blog, I present the many sides of Vienna that make this city so colorful and varied. My life is just as colorful. I am also a yoga teacher, love my essential oils from doTERRA, and like cooking vegan and exploring the city with my Vespa. Anyone who knows me knows that something is always going on with me.

Attention fish is crossing!

Vienna as a marine biology research center… Yes, this was a real plan.

How it all began …

Looshaus Wien (c) Andreas Praefcke

Vienna is known worldwide for its unique architecture. From imperial buildings like Schönbrunn Palace to modern architecture by contemporary visionaries. Many buildings tell their own extraordinary story, which can sometimes be very moving and emotional.
