The SECOND SPACE is one or two windows in the Donisl Passage.  I’ve mentioned this on our Facebook page but as I’ve seen over the last year, not everyone is paying attention when I write. (Why Not? I don’t throw gibberish at you.  Why don’t you pay attention?)

Facts about the space:

  • Location: Marienplatz 1, in the Passage near Café Woerner
  • Electricity and rent free!!!!
