We wanted to give the Observation Wheel a name that conveys emotion and life. We deliberately chose a name that is distinctly Bavarian, from the dialect traditionally spoken in Munich and its surroundings.
A competition to find a name was held between MAURER SE, Werksviertel and hi-sky Consulting GmbH. An employee at MAURER SE submitted the suggestion.
Duden, the authoritative dictionary of the German language, defines the name as ‘Bavarian for all-round’ (rundherum in Standard German).
URKERN GmbH submitted multiple creative proposals, with the company partners agreeing on the winning proposal following a joint process.
The time that the Munich Observation Wheel will stay depends on when construction of the concert hall will begin. This construction has been postponed until February 2022.
It will stay at its current location until construction of the concert hall starts or longer, when a new location will be found.
