The former Aubingen thermal power station is an industrial building in the Munich district of Aubing , on Rupert-Bodner-Straße, which has been a listed building since 2007 . [1]


The power plant was planned in 1937 as part of an unfinished industrial plant of the Reichsbahn and built from 1940. Previously, archaeological excavations were carried out to open up parts of a Bavarian burial ground (see the section Archaeological Finds in History of Aubing ). During the Second World War, the Reichsbahn facilities in Aubing were bombed, after the end of the war the facility was initially unused. In 1952, the Deutsche Bundesbahn converted the hall into a thermal power station . Since its shutdown, probably twelve years later, the hall has been empty.

In the 1990s, techno parties took place in the building, with Monika Kruse as a DJ , among others . [1]

In 2005, the then railway company Vivico sold the hall with the 20,000 square meter site with protected trees to the oil company and petrol station operator Allguth , who wanted to set up a company headquarters here. The planning was carried out by the Munich architects Haack und Höpfner, and a building application was submitted in 2006. However, despite the approval, construction did not begin, instead Allguth sold again in late 2010 / early 2011. In March 2011, the new owner was unknown. [1] [2] In the meantime, Allguth GmbH is the owner again. [3]


The hall is 45 meters wide and 25 meters high. The facade of the three sides of the building, preserved in their original state, consists of brickwork, which is dominated by 20 meter high ribbon windows. The window frames and the neoclassical cornice on the roof are made of Nagelfluh . The west facade, on the other hand, is a makeshift construction from the 1950s. [1] The poor state of preservation of the hall, especially the roof, was in November 2010 issue in the relevant district committee Aubing-Lochhausen-Langwied . [4]
