the isar

IT consultant, Johannes Holzer, 38, from Krün, Germany, braved the cold to capture breath-taking shots of the milky way from a whole new perspective. They were taken from above and below the water’s surface along the Isar. Johannes said: “I was fascinated that you can see the milky way but I had absolutely no idea how to take a picture of it.

The tale of two cities according to Heiko and Stephi - Part 100

Woohoo! This is post number 100! That’s unbelievable! I learned a lot about our hometowns. Even though Heiko and I don’t like each other, for this little project we met in Cologne and Munich. This and next week we want to share what we liked most in the other city.

Stephi: I love the cathedral in Cologne (first photo). It’s such an impressive building inside and outside. I remember that I said loud “WOW” when I was in the cathedral for the first time. I like the dark atmosphere mixed with the colorful windows.

Heiko: I had two ‘aha’-moments. One was when we went to Munich’s river, the Isar. My first reaction was: “You call that a river?” Stephi always said that the Isar is just a little river but to me it looked more like a little creek. We have rivers that size all around.
Still, the river had something magical. We went there in the evening hours and the sun already set with just a little orange glow of yellow and orange. The evening mood with the snow made this a great place to be even though it was colder than cold.

Thank you everyone for following our little series!

And no, I don’t like Stephi, at all.

Get To Know Important People At Bayern Munich: Team Manager Kathleen Krüger

Ladies and Gentlemen, Kathleen Krüger! She is the team manager of Bayern Munich and I’ve met her in February - she’s awesome. 

She played football herself at Bayern Munichs Womens Team from 2003 to 2009. 

She’s 31 years old, was former assistant of Christian Nerlinger (former sporting director) and since a couple of years, she is our team manager.

She’s responsible for everything around the team: planning and booking the away trips, organizing events with sponsors of the players, checking that the bus is leaving on time and she’s even responsible for the teams free-time activities during the trainings camp. 

She also once said, that she prefers to do her work in the background and doesn’t want to be noticed. When I met her, she told us, that actually her whole life rotates around her work - she nearly has to be available for 24/7. To get things off her mind, she enjoys going jogging near the Isar. 

The team absolutely adores her - and she’s the only woman, who works that close with the team. They all have a lot of respect for her and love her a lot - when I was talking with her, she was always referring to the players as ‘her boys’. 

Here, have Franck Ribery singing ‘Kathleen Krüger, you are the best woman in the world” 

I’ve met her as a really self-confident, independent and strong woman who’s not taking shit from anybody and knows exactly, what she can do. We are lucky to have her, because without her, probably half of our team would’ve gotten lost somewhere and I hope, she will stay for a very long time with us xx
