A lot of interesting information on a tour around the town hall

A lot of interesting information on a tour around the town hall

On thursday evening, a small group of interested people gathered to meet in the row "oh! How already is munnerstadt" on a tour of discovery "around the munnerstadt town hall to give. Franz gock, who as a long-time city leader has some experience in this field, succeeded in bringing the history of munich to life through the town hall in an exciting way. Thereby came both the "rough" the participants were also interested in the historical topics, such as the foundation of the city by the hennebergs, the reformation and counter-reformation, or the 30-year war, as well as the nice anecdotes from the history of the city. Several of those present could still remember the public scales that used to be installed in front of the town hall, and even the oxen that were tied there until a few decades ago.

A barracks from switzerland

In addition to the town hall itself, the historic buildings around it were also discussed. A surprising realization for most of the participants was that "switzerland the so-called "marienanstalt" got its name from the fact that a swiss barracks once processed the milk collected in this stately courtyard. The so-called marienanstalt, on the other hand, was built in 1578 by the then mayor andreas oesterreicher, who, however, as a protestant, left the town soon after. Both buildings were considered by all present to be decorative pieces of the old town, and it is to be hoped that their renovation will soon be tackled in order to preserve them. Because there are already enough losses of historical buildings, such as the former inn "zum goldenen lowen", which was an imposing half-timbered building. Franz gock remembered that there was already a television there in 1958, on which he watched the soccer world cup in brazil when he was still at school.

But around 1960, the building was demolished and replaced by a new building, which is hardly comprehensible from today’s point of view. Also the war memorial for the "heroes" of the german-french war of 1870, which was still standing at the town hall until the 1970s, was cleared away and is today scattered in fragments in various places. None of those present could say why it was removed from its original place. Whether it was perhaps no longer appropriate to celebrate the victory over france when the twinning agreement with stenay was signed in 1979?

port calls for eu requirements against coarse containerships

The european ports are making a stand against increasingly coarse container ships and want to use the leverage of antitrust law to do so.

"Coarser ships require large additional investments in port infrastructure," said gunther bonz, president of the unternehmensverband hafen hamburg (UVHH), referring to turning circles, quay walls and deep and wide fairways. These investments are to be borne mainly by the taxpayers, he told the german press agency. The elbe deepening project currently underway is expected to cost approximately 780 million euros.

Currently, the coarse container ships are around 400 meters long and more than 60 meters wide with a draught of up to 16.50 meters. They can carry up to 23.Transport 000 standard containers (TEU). From the port’s point of view, that’s the way it should stay.

A corresponding study is already known, said bonz: "and if there is a study, then the ships will also be built soon."

outdoor manufacturers fear for young target group

"Young people in europe are doing much less sport than in the past," says arne strate, secretary general of the industry association european outdoor group. So it’s not so much a matter of getting the younger generation to take up hiking, climbing or biking, but rather of motivating them to be active in the first place.

According to figures from 2017, almost half of europeans (46 percent) are completely inactive, i.E. They don’t even go for a walk, says strate. In addition, young people today wouldn’t know life without a smartphone: "we reach them with our ‘old’ products message: "go out, it’ll be great, you’ll love it" not at all."

Climate protection manager arrives at the office on his racing bike

As the first district in northern bavaria, the district of lower franconia now employs a climate protection manager. Viktor antlitz is to develop an integrated climate protection concept for the district over the next two years "so that we can be even more careful with natural resources", explained district president erwin dotzel, who buried the 27-year-old engineer in his new workplace.

Antlitz, who studied energy technology in erlangen, will initially focus his work on procurement, mobility, IT structures, real estate, and heat and cold generation. Antlitz is aware that he has to do real pioneering work, as there is nothing comparable in other districts yet. At the top of his to-do list are, for example, the purchase and use of regional and seasonal products or the use of reusable bottles instead of disposable containers for the cakes of the district hospitals.

One of the new climate protection manager’s main goals is to get district employees to leave their cars behind more often on their way to work and use public transportation or bicycles instead.
