Leica Gallery and Boutique
Since 2008, the Salzburg gallery scene has boasted yet another resonant name: The Leica Gallery originally opened on Mirabellplatz, then relocated to Gaisbergstraße in 2016. Here, visitors discover a combination of sales, exhibitions and various cultural offerings.
As the name suggests, FOTO Gallery Leica focuses on select historical and contemporary photography. In approximately six rotating exhibitions per year, a selection of acclaimed photographers and emerging talents are presented. The finishing touches to the gallery experience are provided by a bookstore offering photography books, new editions and various rarities.
The Leica Empire
Leica galleries can be found at 18 different locations worldwide. They all have very close ties to Austrian Andreas Kaufmann, who bought and restructured the traditional German brand Leica in 2006. The gallery in Salzburg is run by Mrs. Rehn-Kaufmann, the wife of the owner. At Leica Boutique Salzburg, interested visitors will discover a stock of current LEICA products. Expert employees and custom-tailored workshops make the gallery a true hotspot for professionals.
The Leica Gallery regularly exhibits at different locations in Salzburg. This includes exhibitions hosted within the framework of the Festival in the foyer of the festival halls (2017) as well as at Hotel Sacher. Exhibitions are also regularly featured at Schloss Arenberg.
