360 Panorama – how did students live in the post-war period?

If you want to know what a room in a hall of residence looked like in 1949, take a look at our 360 panorama. The reconstruction of a student's room back then will give you a detailed impression.

The reason for the historical reconstruction of this room was the 50th anniversary of the “Wegweiser - Studieren in München” (the city guide for students in Munich) more than 20 years ago. In celebration of this anniversary, the director at the time, Dieter Maßberg,  had the room reconstructed on the premises of the Studierendenwerk, where, for quite a long time, it was exhibited.

Here you can have a look at what the interior architects Ushi Tamborriello and Markus Fritschi managed to create.

Anyone who has had a look at this student's digs will know that luxury for students used to amount to a good book, a fair amount of soap and a functioning spare fuse for the power supply.
