Birth Place of Pope Benedikt XVI
...ready built model, scale HO (1:87), by Vollmer
Pope Josef Ratzinger was born April 16th, 1927 in this house and grew up and lived with his parents for 2 years here. It's a solid, imposing, bavarian style building.
The house was built 1745 and served various different tenants and puposes throughout the years.
Almost 70.000 tourists have already visited the village Marktl near Altötting, to see the Birthplace of the German Pope, since he was elected.
For our model, the original house was photographed and designed with all the exact details.
The house got very famous after it appeared in a well known internet auction site and enormous amounts were offered for it. A cooperation of various bavarian institutions could finally manage to get the betters off and keep the house.
The new model will be available in all cooperating toy stores at a recommended sales price of Euro 29,95 or ready built for Euro 34,95 respectively. The ready built model can be purchased directly at Vollmer GmbH & Co. KG, Porschestr. 25, 70435 Stuttgart, Fax: 0711-82009-39 as well - for a price of Euro 40.- shipping included.
For delivery outside Germany, prices will vary. Please ask.
