"Thank goodness we have the most difficult phase behind us", says karl-heinz schmidt. "Now it's possible to build upwards at high speed." The architect sits on a bench in the gewolbekeller with bernhard schlereth, president of the franken carnival association, as they take stock of the situation. Construction workers normally take a break here. There are sandwiches, newspapers and thermos flasks on the table. Everything still untouched, because now the manner is still working. That's what you get when the doors are closed. It is called, it is said, it is drilled. Everything for the new carnival museum.
The museum was previously housed in the falterturm – but it no longer complies with fire safety regulations. The tower had to be rebuilt. The landmark of kitzingen had changed its face significantly. But no one wanted that, so it was clear: a new location for the museum had to be found. Luitpoldstrabe 4, rosenstrabe 8 and 10 are being rebuilt for this purpose.
