What is »Türmer München«?

»Türmer München« is the name of a new project at the Gasteig in which everyone can take part.
The word »Türmer« goes back to the Middle Ages.
It comes from the German word »Turm«, which means »tower«.
The »Türmer« were the city’s watchmen.
They stood on high towers and
watched over the city.

People who take part in »Türmer München«
stand on the roof of the Gasteig for an hour
and look out over the city.

After that, they can write down or draw in a book
what they have seen or thought about during this hour.
They will also have their photo taken.
This photo and their text or drawing will then be put
on the »Türmer München« website.

When does »Türmer München« take place?

The project takes place for one year:
from 12 December 2020 to 12 December 2021.
There are two times on each day:
one at sunrise and one at sunset.
During each of these times,
one person can stand on the roof
and look out over the city.
