Overlook –
The Drink

During Michelberger Music, our Overlook room on the fourth floor became unofficial afterhours music making headquarters at the hotel. Naturally, a libation was usually required, and often obtained at the bar on the way up to the top of the hotel. So the bar team came up with something energising, refreshing and strong to power those collaborative sessions into the small hours. This is how Overlook – the drink – is made: ()

People
All Inclusive

If we believe that people are innocent by nature, we can accept that all the wrong doing comes from the stories they are telling themselves and history they create by interacting with their parents, friends and social surrounding, over the years.

Black Magic Baby Jesus –
Exhibition & Performance by Ramin Krause

We met Ramin when he was here for Michelberger Music, alongside Vincent Moon and his crew of filmmakers. A couple of weeks ago Ramin told us about a special project he has been working on… One year ago I sailed on a sail boat around the South Pacific and when our boat broke, I was stranded on a small Island. I ended up staying for 6 months, living in villages ()
