Other Hotel Silver Swan, Austria - August 2016

Recommended Posts

Situated half way up a mountain in a sleep little Austrian village, we arrived here after a rather long drive through the day. We planned to sleep inside for the night, but upon a quick scout round we couldn't find a way in. We mooched back to the car and got the tents, and found a flatish bit of grass to set up on. I was about to call it a night until i looked up - one of the most beautiful skies i'd ever seen. After a rather short debate we trooped back to the car to get the cameras - along with beers and snacks and set up for some shots. Unfortunately the cloud started to roll in, and we were greeted with a rather beautiful thunderstorm over the mountains in the distance. In hindsight, i'm glad we didn't get in at first, because it was a truly enjoyable night sitting around with a few beers, chatting and taking photos. This was taken from outside my tent - and what a beautiful view we woke up to the next morning.

After a rather poor nights sleep - mostly down to the fact we were pitched on a hill and kept sliding down in our tent, we packed up and before we left had another look round. Thankfully we found an open window - one we'd missed in the dark, so retreating to the car once again to get our cameras before making our way inside. It seems the local vandals have hit this place too - with some awful graff in places but i avoided photographing these bits mostly. Overall it was a rather pleasant explore, with some beautiful views I won't be forgetting any time soon.

Looks like a very nice place, and you've captured it very well. My favorits of the interiors are 1, 3 & 5. And of course the fantastic sky!

      I wanted to visit the building for more than two years, but I was never before in the area of this country. And I would probably not flew there this summer, if would not have been reports that the building is to be restored soon. Meanwhile, I doubt this message; but at least the rumor has had the consequence, finally to realize the visit.
       
      Currently, the former casino can only be visited with permission. Even at night a guard was present.
       
      The building was commissioned around 1900 and it was built between 1904-1910. Because maintaining was too expensive, the casino closed in 1990.
      Allegedly, already in 2013 the EU has approved 10 million € for the renovation. If this is true, it is surprising that nothing has happened within the last three years. I asked the town council by email  whether there are plans for a renovation in the near future, but I'm still waiting for an answer.

      When I got my fisheye, and as I am from Norfolk one of the first photos I took with it was a tractor! I was quite pleased with the results so I thought I would have a wander about this site. All are processed from 3 handheld bracketed images. I know a bit lazy. Sorry there seems to be a bit of a formula to the images but I hope you enjoy.
