Mini Munich: Mini Town

Munich – In this wedding everything goes with it: the wedding speech, the wedding guests, the delivery of the ring, the marriage contract, the veil – and in the end, not the kiss, but the handshake.

But the couple is still young. After all, the wedding takes place in a real adult city hall, but still in the context of Mini Munich.

In Spielstadt, which is held every two yearsAnd the Children determine how to manage things.

Thus, the two married with Sven Grauert (11 years old) and Mariella Lassack (14 years old) during a visit from A to Z on Thursday – as representatives of the bank and town hall in Mini Munich. Entire institutions marry in Spielstadt! In this case, all City Hall employees, and all Bank employees.

seems strange? Perhaps, but it is a rule that the children made themselves.

Bringing children’s learning closer to their everyday world

And that’s what they should do in Mini Munich, as Gerd Grunesl explains, One of the core members of the Game City organizational team. “The goal is to bring children’s learning closer to their everyday world again – not behind closed doors.” It doesn’t matter at all at school, says the 78-year-old. At Mini-München, children can decide for themselves what they want to learn, according to the board of directors of the association Kultur & Spielraum.

The Spielstadt principle means: In Mini-Munich there is everything that is in the adult world: politicians, journalists, city administration, banks, restaurants. The show is still available this week, continuously at Fröttmaning and once a week at City Hall.

Grüneisl has been there since the first Munich mini. The age range of the participating children is quite large from seven to 15 years. They can learn from each other and help each other. “When 2,000 or more children who are roving in the field meet in very specific circumstances, entirely new relationships arise,” says Grunesl. “That’s the exciting part!”

Social behavior is learned in Mini Munich

According to the organizer, social behavior is learned everywhere in the city of play: in city meetings, in city council, in newspapers, on television. “It’s all about negotiation and negotiation.” The children often felt like adults, Gronesl says. It’s funny sometimes when the Mini Munich city council sees itself as a fellow of the real city council, for example.

You can try it on Thursday in political conversations – An exchange between a real Munich and a real Munich. This time, Mini Munich Mayor Julia Grunewald (14), Mayor Johann Kreuz (15) and members of the Mini Munich City Council were allowed to meet with city school inspector Florian Krause (Greens).

They want to know, for example, why toilets in schools are always so dirty or how it supports digitization in schools. Of course there are also personal questions: “Did you enjoy going to school?” (“From 5th grade, yes”) “What material did you like?” (“Mathematics and Chemistry”).

By the way, the school board loves Mini-Munich very much. And he apparently took something with him: When asked what should be changed in the Munich schools, he said, “The stabilization of grades should go down, the students should be able to decide for themselves what they want to learn more. Then it’s more fun.”

This sounds a lot like goals who also want to get to Grüneisl with Mini-Munich. The city school inspector immediately credits Krause: “We can’t decide that.”

There are small mayors and reporters from Munich

For children and young people to share in the fun, joy and energyIf they can make the decision themselves and let them take charge, it becomes immediately apparent when you see and talk to them at Mini-Munich.

There is, for example, Diego Vermehr (14), Who loves the fact that they can pursue any profession they want and can empathize with adult life. On the day of the AZ visit, he was working as a reporter for the Mini-Münchens newspaper along with the evening newspaper reporter on political conversations with the city school board.

Or 14-year-old Mayor Julia Grunewald, who wanted to become active in politics herself after proposals for a quota for women in another job at the Games City went unfulfilled. Giulia says she is a huge fan of the Munich mini, “You can live and try it.”

The little ones are also excited: 11-year-old Leonard Kreutzer thinks Mini Munich is cool. “Staff are always friendly and will help you,” says the boy. He also loves the many functions available in the Mini-Munich. Currently working in a bank. His tasks: opening new bank accounts, withdrawing funds.

Almost like adults only Those in Mini Munich have nothing to say.
