Launch Event – Prater Tour

Exploring - WU, Prater and Praterstraße

by Thomas Preyer

In February we sent an e-mail to our newsletter-subscribers, offering them a spot on a preview of our new tour at a very much discounted rate. To our delight the tour was fully booked within 3 hours.

Last Saturday, March 7th 2015, we met at the PolaWalk office for the start of our new "Polaroid Photo Tour -Prater".

The exclusive event kicked off with an introduction to instant-photography and the rental vintage, Polaroid cameras. The explanation was accompanied by coffee and snacks.

The dark clouds that were looming in the Vienna sky eventually disappeared as the group entered the metro. We took U2 to station Krieau, which is located in the 2nd district (Leopoldstadt) close to the newly built University of Business and Economics (WU). This building complex is a place full of interesting world class architecture. Shapes, shades and lines were offering themselves for being snapped with the cameras.

Next we passed the popular club location Pratersauna who's walls featured a number of beautiful graffiti. A popular photo subject which we embrace in our "Polaroid Photo Tour - Urban".

The main attraction of this sightseeing tour is the Prater or Wurstelprater, an almost 250 year old amusement park. The park has it's 250 year anniversary in 2016! As you can imagine, the place is full of colorful subjects waiting for being a Polaroid taken off.

We concluded the photo walk at Supersense, the home of analog delicacies, the new baby of "The Impossible Project" founder Florian Kaps.

The girls gang (yes, it was all girls) took a crazy number of fantastic pictures, some of them can be seen in the pictures below.

  2. This looks like so much fun! It's making me wish I had an actual old school Polaroid camera... digital cameras are cool and everything, but nothing compares to being able to take a picture and having it printed out and in your hands seconds later. There's just something so cool about that. There's no camera better for photographing your happy hour events and other exciting excursions than a Polaroid! :)

    1. Hey James, awesome you like our tour concept. The Prater-Tour is our most colorful one, it's really a joy walking it :-) We offer it twice a week here in Vienna, Austria, (main season is March until late October). If you ever happen to be in Vienna, drop me a line in advance. Where are you located? I am sure you also have great photo spots where you live.
      If a Polaroid camera is your dream... we actually also sell Polaroid packages for people that want to start with it. I'd recommend this one: http://www.shop.polawalk.com/product/camera-package-basic
      PS: The pictures actually take longer then a couple of seconds to develop ;-)
