Bavaria Hippodromica

 — 

Bavariaring, Munich (OSM)

The Hippodrom – here in the small version for the spring fling – was subject of a drama in this spring: Those beer halls, especially on the Octoberfest, are in highest demand as they are true bonanzas for their owners, but the number is limited and nobody gives up voluntarily. But then the German IRS vulgo ‘Finanzamt’ found out, that the Hippodrom owner had substantially evaded taxes, this branding him morally inept for the ownership of an Octoberfest landlord (sic!). So there were not only clouds and raindrops over this gold mine, but he had to give up business in spite of all recurrences to tradition and the innkeeper’s perfect contacts to politicians at all levels. Even the Bavaria – here a smaller replica of the bronze original, is supposed to have wept bitter tears.

  1. Und so so schützt keinerlei Tradition vor der harten & gerechten Hand des Fiskus. Ein buntes Dach über den Kopf aber schützt immer wieder vor den Tränen des Himmels. Und die Welt speigelt sich im feuchten Boden. Eine feine Melancholie des Bildes, die mich unmittelbar gefangen nimmt.

    Viele Grüße & weiterhin sichere Straßen, Fritsch.

    1. Florian, bei diesem Frühlingsfest hatten die Wirte offensichtlich nicht genug Kerzen gestiftet: Petrus hatte kein Einsehen, und das Finanzgericht auch nicht. Ach, die Gerechten müssen viel leiden…
