APRIL 2017: VPW & VIENNA EXPATS PRESENT Servitenviertel

Dear Photo Walkers!

Having enjoyed our last photo walk in the St. Ulrich Grätzl of Neubau, we’ve decided to do a similarly detailed, focused walk around another Grätzl in the inner city this month: Servitenviertel in Alsergrund, the 9th District of Vienna. From churches to green parks, museums to palaces, and hipster shops to the river banks – the Servitenviertel is charming, photogenic, and has a rich history. This photo walk was carried out by Vienna Photo Walk in collaboration with Vienna Expats, one of Vienna’s largest online communities providing information for Expats living in and around Vienna, and was great chance to meet new faces. Thank you to everyone new who came along to join us!

DECEMBER 2016: CHRISTMAS IN HIRSCHSTETTEN

Wrapping Things Up for 2016 XMas Style

Our group faced the challenge of keeping our cameras clean while getting close-up action shots.

AUGUST 2016: “1010 in Black & White” PHOTO WALK

Ah, August…. the month before it all starts again. I will argue that September is more of a “new beginning” than January could ever be: everyone awakens from their summer-coma, the kids go back to school, and there’s a freshness and buzz in the air that you just can’t beat! However, before we get there, we still do have August- the ultimate lazy, hot, sticky month when the city dies down, its inhabitants leave it, and those of us left wonder what the hell we’re still doing here.

We certainly weren’t expecting huge numbers, and were super pleased to see ten happy photo walkers show up at the gates of Volksgarten on a warm Monday evening, ready to tackle this month’s topic: “1010 in Black & White”.
