Alberner Hafen is located at the river Danube, at the south-east border of Vienna. This small port of trans-shipment was built around 1940 to ship crop from Eastern Europe. Somehow the plans didn’t work out and the port remained non significant. The storage silos are characteristic for this place, everything looks old, shabby, rusty, so… perfect for cool shootings or just running around. It’s best to go there on Sunday when no workers are around (check the buses beforehand to prevent endless waiting times).

There are some areas with big rolls of steel sheets lying around, which reminded me of a movie called “Stalker” (by Andrej Tarkovsky). Scary. Don`t get lost there, this place absorbs sound like a sponge and you can cry as much as a you want, nobody will hear you!
