  • We visited while the had the World Press exhibit. It was moving. Given the extensive collection & display of cameras and related items, my guess, they only show amazing & worthwhile photography.  more »
  • WestLicht Gallery. Even its location can be called original. Center for photography is located in the attic of the House, which until 1950 was a glass factory. WestLicht-and photo exhibition and Museum simultaneously. In the stands displayed cameras, Flash, lenses and other equipment, presented the first photos taken by daguerreotypy, as well as the work of world-renowned artists. The highlight of the galleries is "forefather" of modern cameras "Susse Frères Daguerreotype Camera of the year 1839.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
