Martin (son of Konrad IV and Ilse Hitz) was raised in Villach (Carinthia, Austria). In 1978, he went to Vienna to study informatics at the Technical University and to start an academic career at the University of Vienna. In 1987, Martin married Katharina. In 1990/91, he spent a year as post-doc at the University of Ottawa, accompanied by Katharina and their daughter Hannah. In 2000 he became a full professor of informatics at the University of Klagenfurt, close to his old hometown Villach. In 2002, the whole family moved to Villach and is now living in the old family house in the city centre. In 2007, Martin founded the Faculty of Technical Sciences which he resided over as a dean until 2012. Since 2012 he works as vice rector for human ressources. In his rare free time, Martin enjoys outdoor activities with his family like sailing, skiing and fly fishing, playing cards or lazing around.

Katharina is a medical doctor and a psychotherapist. In Vienna she was working in a hospice and in a senior residence of the Jewish community. In 2002 she and the children left Vienna to follow Martin to Carinthia. After a year of struggling in order to finish the reconstruction work of her old family house and to coach the children into their new social environment, she found a job in the Social-Psychiatric Centre of Spittal/Drau where she supported patients with any kind of psycho-social needs. Later, she joined the mobile hospice team of Villach Hospital. Currently, she is working as a psychotherapist in Villach's Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Center and also in her own private practise. Katharina loves nature and animals, literature, theater and her friends (in Vienna...).

Hannah was born in Vienna, and (after the family moved to Carinthia) she attended a »bilingual« (German/English) high school in Villach. After graduating in 2006, she spent a year in Chicago as an au pair. She is currently studying psychology at the University of Vienna, where she shares an apartment with her brother and two other students. Hannah enjoys reading, cooking, outdoor activities, playing the piano, enjoying time with her friends and going home for the various holidays, to spend time in beautiful Carinthia with her family.

Konstantin attended the same school as Hannah did, plays the saxophone and takes care of his dog Sirius (when he is at home). After graduation from high school, he did his civil service as a paramedic (and still volunteers from time to time). He is now studying physics and philosophy in Vienna. Like Hannah, he also likes to come home to Carinthia from time to time, where he supports his clumsy father in diverse house works.
