Step by step to the big goal

Step by step to the big goal

The most unusual gastronomic project in the city continues to take shape. Although the beer garden at the former hospital building at the city tower was already inaugurated in August last year, the Riemer brothers were far from finished at that time. Harald, Ralf and Joachim had bought the run-down building from the city in 2013.
Since then, they have been rebuilding it mainly under their own steam. A project of the heart, because all of them also have a job. The gastronomic use serves to bring some life into the house again.

From the outside, not much has changed in the past few months, the most noticeable change is the new lettering on the front side facing the Lauter River. “Wohlauf, the air goes fresh and pure”, Since the end of April, there has been – from the Frankenlied by Joseph Victor von Scheffel. It is the best-known part of this song by the poet whose legacy was kept in the house around 1900. “At that time it was a kind of “museum”, says Harald Riemer. On the side now also the lettering “Spitalhaus” appears at. This has already led to many inquiries from visitors to the beer garden, he says. But the building was never a hospital in the sense of a hospital, he says. Single people could move into the “Spitalstiftung” here with their real estate – and then lived like in a kind of retirement home.

This is how the opening was about a year ago

In the investigation of tax evasion against customers of the bank, the business premises of ten German branches were searched, said Bernd Bieniobek, senior public prosecutor in Bochum, confirming an online report of the “Wallstreet Journal Deutschland”.

Light-hearted listening pleasure in kronach

Light-hearted listening pleasure in Kronach

The name of the ensemble was inspired by the Latin word spirare (to breathe, to breathe, to live). The quartet consists of four musicians who are active in the Kronach, Coburg and Bamberg area in a variety of artistic and pedagogical ways. They are united by the joy of making music together as well as the desire to rediscover rather seldom played works.

On the program of the Kronach concert are extremely rarely played original compositions, where the sound color variety of the different woodwind instruments comes to full development both in contrast and in the fusion with the piano. So the concert promises surprisingly fresh listening experiences.

The three-talk – cheerful and lively in the melody – by Johann Valentin Hamm lets you feel the charm of the so-called spa music. In addition to his work in the Wurzburg theater orchestra, Hamm was concertmaster of the Kissingen spa orchestra since 1855. In this position he composed many works for the spa music, which should have a therapeutic effect on the psyche of the sick people.

Obviously over the Internet operational readiness level the company on the Kulmbacher had become attentive, is Volker Matysiak in the meantime convinced. After contacting the company’s lawyer, an agreement was found: Each musician paid 1000 marks, and the name of the band was also changed. “The 3” were born. That was 2002.

The day the euro arrived

The day the euro arrived

Logistically, the effort was enormous. And the customers were curious to see what it would be like with the new money. They only knew the euro from pictures or the famous coin starter kit (contents: 10.23 euros worth 20 deutschmarks), which was issued by savings banks and banks in mid-December 2001.

Is the cash enough?

To ensure that everything ran as smoothly as possible at the turn of the year, the banks took precautions: “We started the hard phase of the cash-only changeover in the spring of 2001, Norbert Geier from the Sparkasse Ostunter franken remembers. At the time, he was coordinating the euro changeover in the Hassberge area for his bank. He also looked after business customers, whose main concern at the time was: Is the cash enough?? The savings bank was prepared: “A lot of additional surveillance technology was installed to house the cash reserves.” In the main office in Hassfurt, even part of the basement area was converted into a vault. Overall, says Geier, the changeover has gone well. Customers would have reacted quite positively to the euro. “Everyone was curious to see the new money. The private customers received bills yes starting from New Year from the cash dispensers.” The rush was enormous, and quite a few bank employees had to put in extra shifts.

From 11 p.m. onwards, a queue of around 150 revellers formed, stretching from the entrance to the new event hall to Bahnhofstrasse. A few hours earlier, the official opening of the new location had been celebrated with invited guests, from which all those involved expect an upgrade of Habfurt’s nightlife.

The bosses of the “Cafe Kolsch

Ramon Hummer and Leonid Rosa, who have already opened the “Cafe Kolsch” in Schweinfurt, are the two most enthusiastic about the new restaurant two experienced hosts in the night gastronomy have been found, who were willing to breathe new life into the old goods hall at the Habfurt train station. The building, which is a listed building, has been extensively renovated in recent months, for which, according to the operator, 450000 euros were invested. The result is impressive. Already at the entrance one is welcomed at the historically recreated ticket counter – a nice idea for a checkroom. Inside the 200-square-meter hall, numerous accessories are reminiscent of times gone by. The bar built from old lattice boxes also has its own charm.

Mayor Gunther Werner was, in his own words, very pleased that the “LokWerk” had been established now finally opened. After a long period of vacancy, he considers it a stroke of luck for the city of Hassfurt that the two investors from Schweinfurt found each other in order to create something new here. “All other alternatives for the use of the goods hall were not so convincing and above all they would have cost the city a lot of money”, said Werner. For Werner, the club is an enhancement of Habfurt’s city life. The property continues to be owned by the city of Hassfurt. A leasehold agreement was concluded with the operators.

As things stand, the association is missing out on revenue of more than 6.5 million euros, offset by savings of around four million euros. “There is no area in our company that is not affected by the cost-cutting measures. But that is our duty. We have lost revenue at a staggering rate, almost a third of the total budget. By the way, this is not our money, but that of our members”, says treasurer Jurgen Faltenbacher. That these are to absorb the thick minus, however, is not planned. “Currently it is not an issue at all to increase the fees for the clubs because of the pandemic”, says press speaker Fabian Fruhwirth on inquiry: “This would have to decide anyway the federation day.”

Fees increased by 1.4 percent

Meanwhile, at its November meeting, the association’s board of directors approved an inflation-related fee adjustment of 1.4 percent for the coming year – as it does almost every year. The increase occurs to the 1. January in force and was decided in consideration of the consumer price indices for 2018 and 2019.
