How do I get to the STOA169 Columned Hall?
The STOA169 can only be reached on foot or by bicycle. Visitors can reach the STOA169 either via a 15-minute walk from car park in Polling (located at the level crossing) or from the car park at the Roßlaichbrücke (on Staatstraße 472 towards Peißenberg).
Bicycles must be parked at designated spots.

How far is the river?
The river Ammer is about 200 meters away. The path to STOA169 follows the course of the river.

Are there any other buildings planned right next  to STOA169?
No. The visual appearance of the columned hall and the proximity to nature should not be disturbed by any other buildings.

Does the visit of the hall cost an admission fee?
No admission is free. Your donation enables the preservation and future of the STOA169. For information, accompanying material as well as an app are available for download for a fee. 

Is it also possible for people with disabilities to visit the STOA169?
Of course, the paths and access are barrier-free.

How is conservation ensured?
The property is about 35,000 square meters. Only five percent of the land area has been built on without sealing the land. In addition, the green areas have been ecologically upgraded.

What about the garbage?
The STOA169 Foundation and its team take care of this.

What conservation measures are planned for STOA169?
Most columns are weatherproof. After a few years, restoration work will certainly be needed, which the Foundation will undertake with the help of your donations.

How is art protected against vandalism?
In principle, art in public spaces cannot be protected against damage. But the respect for art is great, according to experience.

What material are the pillars made of? What burden do they have to bear?
The material was individually determined by the artists. Static specifications were met to support the common roof.

How does the rainwater run off?
The rainwater is led through the recesses in the roof to the floor plate.

Does the STOA169 offer something for children?
The art experience in the middle of nature offers everyone, including children and young people, an intensive experience. The STOA169 colouring books guarantee children fun both during and after their visit to the Colonnade.

Where is the service area located?
A toilet – also for visitors with disabilities – is located near the STOA169. Public toilets can be found next to the town hall on the church square in Polling.

Is STOA169 illuminated at night? Are the animals disturbed?
The hall is always open, also for birds and wild animals. Since there are no artificial light sources in and around STOA169, the animals have their rest after sunset.
