Hard at work in Munich 19-23 October, 2015
It was supposed to be all work here in Munich, but as you know all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy - so he went out to play with his little camera !
The entire Keramischer OFENBAU team from Germany, Spain and India (some 15 of us) stayed at a quaint hotel quite not far from the Messe.
The three days at the Messe we worked really hard meeting customers and suppliers which culminated in settling two contracts. Of course this called for some significant celebrations and merry making. Food and drink was aplenty !
The Feldherrnhalle (Field Marshall's Hall) is a monumental loggia on the Odeonsplatz in Munich, Germany. Modeled after the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence, it was commissioned in 1841 by King Ludwig I of Bavaria to honor the tradition of his army.
In 1923 it was the site of the brief battle that ended Hitler's Beer Hall Putsch. During the Nazi era it served as a sacred site commemorating the 16 Nazi SA 'martyrs' who died in the failed putsch.
St. Michael in Berg am Laim is a church in Munich, southern Germany, built from 1738 to 1751 by Johann Michael Fischer as Court Church for Prince Archbishop Clemens August of Cologne, a son of the Bavarian Elector Maximinial Emmanuel. Clemens August owned Berg am Laim as a manor. It was also served by a Brotherhood of St. Michael the Archangel. The Catholic church is one of the chief works of the Bavarian rococo period.
