Not so long ago, the Erding thermal baths broke the visitor record.

Thanks to Corona, things are currently very different.

There are big financial problems.

The boss is making allegations.

  • The visitor record was set at the beginning of 2020 - but the

    Erding thermal baths are

    currently closed

    due to Corona

    .

  • Where the sources of money were once gushing,

    things

    are no longer looking rosy

    financially due to the

    pandemic

    .

  • The boss applied for

    financial support

    , but apparently much less is due than expected.

  • So owner Jörg Wund doesn’t skimp on criticism of those responsible in the

    federal government

    .

Erding - Exactly one year ago the owner of the

Erdinger Therme

, Jörg Wund, and his authorized signatory Marcus Maier

cheered

: a new

visitor

record of 1.86 million visitors in 2019. Then came Corona, the number of guests dropped dramatically to 800,000.

The thermal baths were only open for 163 days in 2020.

But what really worries Wund is that he has to expect that the federal government will only reimburse a fraction of the lost sales.

Therme Erding in corona lockdown: a maximum of four million euros instead of a double-digit million amount?

"So far, the loss in sales is around 40 million euros, but because we are still not allowed to open, I expect 60 million euros soon," calculates authorized signatory Maier.

Even if he cannot apply the full amount to

November aid

-

75 percent

announced by politicians

- entrepreneur Wund would be entitled to a

double-digit million amount

.

"If I got that, I shouldn't have to worry too much."

But he is far from that: Suddenly there is talk of “Novemberhilfe Plus”.

This threatens not only for Wund, but also for

entrepreneurs with several companies

under one roof.

"Now it is said that we are only entitled to a maximum of four million euros," says the entrepreneur angrily.

Therme Erding: boss reproaches government politicians Altmaier and Scholz

Economics Minister Peter Altmaier (CDU), who has had to be quarantined several times, and Finance Minister Olaf Scholz (SPD) accuse him of breaking his word in this context.

The fact that he can still sleep soundly "is thanks to my thrift and the good work of my staff," he reveals.

Almost all of the 500 employees are currently on short-time work.
