Topotheque – Our local area back in the day

A great deal of historical knowledge captured in old photographs often sits hidden away in drawers and cupboards in people’s private homes and, as a result, can get lost forever. In order to secure these historical documents for posterity, we make it possible to digitalise old photos and film material. These are then made available and can be accessed by the entire population on the platform www.topothek.at/en.

We present old town views

We would like to introduce you to our communities "back in the day" and regularly show historical images in form of town views on our website. Do you also have old pictures of your community? Then get in touch with us in the LEADER office. We publish your pictures and / or pass them on to your responsible topothequer. HERE you can have a look at which location views have already been uploaded!
