The Zeiler-Alm today on the outskirts of Bad Tölz. The times when people liked to dance and party there a lot are long gone ©.
There was a bit of melancholy when the Tölz building committee dealt with the future of the Zeiler-Alm. Because some people associate many memories with the restaurant.
Bad Tölz – Interesting building applications were dealt with by the Tölz building committee at its meeting on Tuesday. One of them concerns the Zeiler-Alm, which is probably still well known to older Tölzers for its dance events and celebrations. Accordingly, there was a lot of melancholy when Martin Harrer (FWG) spoke of "formative" memories of the restaurant on a hill just outside the bathing area. Because it should not remain a restaurant. The owner wants to convert the dining room into a second apartment.
Too bad: One less restaurant
Although the Zeiler-Alm is located on the outskirts of the city, city architect Florian Ernst could well imagine a partial privilege with reference to the building code. Accordingly, the decisive factor is whether the object shapes the image of the cultural landscape or not. However, this decision is made in any case by the district office.
Michael Lindmair (FWG) saw good chances. Nothing will be added and only the floor plan will be changed in the existing building. It is a pity that there is now one less restaurant, but it has probably no longer been profitable for the tenants. It is logical that the owner would think of something else.
Zeiler-Alm is historically significant
Karsten Bauer (CSU) feared a precedent that the head of the building authority, Christian Fürstberger, did not want to recognize at all. "There's no room for discretion. Either it is permissible for the district office or it is not." Nevertheless, Bauer was the only city councillor to stick to his "no" vote. The administration only warned about the lack of drainage plans.
From a historical point of view, the Zeiler-Alm is indeed significant. In the 1860s, there was already a "Sennhütte" there, which served the first Tölz spa guests. At that time, the pond below in today's Vollmöller Park was called Mira Lake, on which the spa guests made boat trips. The pond was named after the Miraus family, who ran the Gottfried House on Benediktbeurer Strasse, which still exists today. Long before there was a spa house and spa park, this area of Tölz was one of the early centres of the Tölz cure. (By Christoph Schnitzer)
