800 square meters, six rooms, up to 70 patients
"We could start tomorrow," says Peter Aicher, founder and managing director of the Aicher Ambulanz Union. He’s pride of his small „Wiesn hospital“. The medical station behind the Schottenhamel festival hall is 800 square metres in size and has a total of six rooms for the treatment and monitoring of patients; there is a large rest room and a shock room plus two fully equipped operating theatres. Around 600 paramedics and helpers come from all over Germany, Austria and Italy to Munich. Together with 30 doctors, they take care of people who are suddenly no longer feeling so well while celebrating or taking the rides.
