New life for the Hans Albers Villa

The overgrown former estate of film star Hans Albers and his partner Hansi Burg on the shores of Lake Starnberg is currently being transformed into a new home for the Young Academy of the Technical University of Munich (TUM). It is to become a place of encounter and remembrance.

The Free State of Bavaria has made the site available for this purpose, on the condition that no state money flows into the costly renovation and historical restoration of the site. Under the direction of Prof. Arnulf Melzer, students are attempting to carry out as much of the work as possible themselves. He is also responsible for raising funds for the project and hopes for further generous support.

Bayerischer Rundfunk reported on the current status in the program "Abendschau":
