It was a poster in a showcase that led to speculation in bamberg’s old town and to a question from the GAL to the city’s leadership: what will become of the profaned marienkapelle at the pfahlplatzchen??
The striking sandstone building with its gothic windows has been under discussion since it was sold by the evangelical free church congregation in 2008. Several considerations to create a cultural space here have come to nothing. Even the city could not bring itself to buy the building.
A new change of ownership brings movement into the matter again. As the poster in the showcase in front of the church showed, a market hall is to be built here one day.
An inquiry with the city confirms this: according to the city, the new owner is in preliminary talks with the building authorities about such a use.
In the interests of economic development and urban development, the city’s leaders seem open to such a use. She has an interest in seeing life return to the heart of the world cultural heritage site.
But what does building officer thomas beese say about the plans for a market hall?? Is such a use conceivable and what conditions could possibly be attached to it?. You can find out the answer here in the premium section of our site.
