I’m sure you’ve heard about them, probably even before Lomography. The Vienna Boys Choir is after all, world famous!

Everyone knows about the world-famous Viennese ‚Sangerknaben, the boys choir that warms your grandmother’s heart. But where does this strange and sailor-dressed species come from, and where can you find them? The answer is easy: they all go to school and chill in the Viennese Augarten in the 2nd district during their breaks. You have to be lucky to find them in their official costumes. But if it happens, you’ll be delighted with all the nice and tidy costumes that are great for Lomographing! Tip: from 1 PM to 2.30 PM they have lunch break, so try your luck at this time! To be 100% sure you should go and see the boys at a proper concert, they actually sing quite well, too. Check for dates!
