Driving Germany's 'Romantic Road' - Condé Nast Traveler

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Main to the Alps in the 1950s, when it needed a bit of post-war positivity; it's said the earliest visitors were "friends and families of American soldiers stationed in the large bases in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg." Americans still flock here, as do Asians, Europeans, and even Germans themselves, and though main attractions can get crowded, there are more than enough quiet corners of castles and cobblestoned alleys in 12th-century towns for everybody.The Trip: Three days, 285 milesStarting in Munich, head southwest toward Füssen at the beginning (or end) of the Romantic Road, and from there, go north to the wine city of Würzburg.What to DriveFor the love of all that is good and muscle-bound, please rent a fast German car. A BMW, an Audi, a Mercedes—doesn't matter. Just pick one and don't let the rental car company try to give you something compact. You'll be on the Autobahn for the initial stretch of the drive out of Munich, and you'll feel safer in a ride with a big engine when everyone else is going 120 mph. Plus, who goes "wooo!" in a Geo on the Autobahn?Day 1: Follow the commuters zooming south out of Munich on A96 toward Füssen and, nearby, King Ludwig II's Neuschwanstein Castle in Schwangau, known as the real-life inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty palace. The 19th-century Romanesque Revival up on the hills does set the fairy-tale tone for this 285-mile ride, though before that, the drive is all highway, all business. You can either start the touristing straight a...

Die neuen Herren der HSH Nordbank

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Deutsch spricht – sehr großzügige Bonusansprüche. Auch die Bawag hat sich jetzt mit einem kleinen Anteil von gut zwei Prozent an der HSH beteiligt. Bereits im Dezember hatten die Österreicher die in Baden-Württemberg tätige Südwestbank mit etwa 650 Mitarbeitern und rund 100.000 Kunden übernommen."Möglicherweise werden die neuen HSH-Eigentümer versuchen, auf dem deutschen Markt durch Kooperationen oder Zusammenschlüsse größere Einheiten zu bilden und dadurch Mehrwert zu schaffen", sagt Faust. Auf dieses Motiv könnte auch die Tatsache hindeuten, dass Cerberus auch an der Deutschen Bank und der Commerzbank mit drei beziehungsweise fünf Prozent beteiligt ist. Das ändere aber nichts daran, dass Deutschland als Bankenmarkt "sehr wettbewerbsintensiv" sei.Das sieht auch ein Banker so, der sich gerade mit den Verhältnissen im Norden exzellent auskennt: Haspa-Chef Harald Vogelsang. "Der Vorstand der HSH Nordbank hat erklärt, man wolle sich auf das Geschäft konzentrieren, das für kleinere Sparkassen zu groß und für Großbanken zu klein ist", so Vogelsang. "Aber genau dieses Kundensegment der klassischen Mittelständler haben auch schon viele andere Banken als attraktiv für sich entdeckt. Die HSH Nordbank wird es dort nicht leicht haben." Nach Einschätzung des Haspa-Chefs ist der Verkauf der HSH schon deshalb eine einschneidende Veränderung für Norddeutschland, "weil die neuen Eigentümer der Bank keinen Bezug zu dieser Region haben und es somit keinen Gleichklang der Interessen mehr gibt."© Hamburger Abendblatt 2018 – Alle Rechte vorbehalten..small-print__copy {display: block; font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 0.7em; margin: 1em 0 1em;} .r-teaser-content {/*background: #E4E4E3;*/ padding:5px 0; display: inline-block; width: 100%;} .r-teaser {margin: 3em 0 4em;} .r-teaser img {display: inline-block; float: left; margin-right: 10px;} .r-teaser strong {display: inline-block; color: #006e27; font-family: Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 24px; margin: 20px 0 0 -4px;} .r-teaser p {color:#333; font-size:14px!important; font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif} .r-teaser a {float:none; color: #333; text-decoration:none;} .r-teaser p a {color: #333;} .r-teaser p .more {color: #006e27; margin-left:5px ; text-decoration:underline;} .article .r-teaser-content p a {border-bo...

Cerberus, der Höllenhund: Was wir über den HSH-Käufer wissen -

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Deutschen Bank, womit Cerberus dort viertgrößter Anteilseigner ist. Bereits 2006 hat Cerberus die Mehrheit der österreichischen Bawag übernommen, die ihrerseits im vergangenen Jahr die Südwestbank in Baden-Württemberg gekauft hat. Cerberus beteiligt sich weltweit an Unternehmen und ist auch im Immobiliengeschäft aktiv.Der Name: Das Unternehmen ist benannt nach dem dreiköpfigen Höllenhund Kerberos oder Zerberus, der in der griechischen Mythologie den Eingang zur Unterwelt bewacht. Feinberg soll der Gedanke gefallen haben, dass einer der drei Köpfe immer wach ist – so wie sein Fonds immer wach sein soll für gute Investments.Der Zweite im Bunde: Bei der HSH Nordbank mit im Boot ist auch der US-Investor J. Christopher Flowers, der bereits seit mehr als zehn Jahren an dem Institut beteiligt ist. Feinberg und Flowers kontrollieren künftig rund 80 Prozent der Anteile an der Bank. zur Startseite...

Why Germany comes alive with religious bombast on Fronleichnam

Saturday, June 24, 2017

The first Fronleichnam procession was held in the year 1270.Where is it celebrated? If you are lucky enough to live in Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Hesse, Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate or North Rhine-Westphalia, you have a holiday on Thursday because of Fronleichnam. If you live anywhere else, more fool you for picking a part of Germany where Martin Luther got the upper hand.A water based parade in Staffelsee, Bavaria. Photo:: DPAWhen is it celebrated? Fronleichnam is always celebrated on the second Thursday after Whitsun. It is really a sort of delayed celebration of the Last Supper which took place on Maundy Thursday. According to Dom Radio, the radio station of the Cologne Cathedral, celebrating the fest on Maundy Thursday wouldn’t befit the reflective nature of Easter. Catholics in states that don’t have a public holiday have their processions on the following weekend.How is it celebrated? Differently in different places. In Fritzlar in north Hesse, the celebrations start on Wednesday night with the so-called Katzenkoppschießen. During this ceremony, the eight bells of the town cathedral are rung and a canon is fired, a ritual that is repeated three times. In Cologne, there is a procession involving over 100 ships, while in Bamberg 18 men carry a huge cross through the town.A floral carpet in Hüfingen, Baden-Württemberg. Photo: DPA Generally the fest is celebrated with processions in which believers carry an ornately decorated monstrance with a sacred Eucharist wafer through the streets. The towns of Hüfingen and Mühlenbach are renowned for their carpets made of flowers, which decorate the route of the procession and stretch to 100 metres in length. It is also common for flags to festoon the route of the procession, while processions often visit alters along the way.The political dimension According to Dom Radio, the processions have often had a subversive element. The extrovert and bombastic character was meant to show Protestants how great it is to be a Catholic. Luther, for his part, described th...
