A / KTN: Topotheque Villach online

Many people automatically think of carnival or summer holidays when they think of Villach. Now other historical aspects of the city can be found, because Villach is the third municipality in Carinthia to open a Topotheque. The arched bridge, which was taken in the last summer of its existence, is symbolic of this bridge into the past. In addition to private individuals, the Museum of the City of Villach has also opened its doors and drawers and, with the support of dedicated staff, has begun to fill the Topotheque. Interesting insights into the working world of the abandoned Villach Westbahnhof marshalling yard or the Strein paper shop can be found, as well as removals and customs around the year. The beginning has been made and the Topothequers of Villach, with you also the city archive, are looking forward to new contributions. Perhaps you were also once a guest in Villach and have a few snapshots?
