How is the home loan from SBI

History of the Kolping House (excerpt)

The Kolping Family has its own house on Pfarrbrückenweg. Long before the building by Praeses Schächtl, the desire for a house of his own was alive. On March 28, 1926 the chronicler wrote: "The previous efforts to obtain a club house have unfortunately remained unsuccessful. But we will continue to work - Rome was not built in a day".

The Catholic journeyman's association was well housed in the Haslbeck brewery, and the chronicler was full of praise and thanks when the hostel father died in 1928, but it was believed "that Catholic life in Catholic associations can only flourish on the floor of one's own house, can grow and prosper, develop and become stronger ".

Finally, on May 23, 1927, construction could begin. The events of each day are noted in a separate construction diary. With its own house, the journeyman's association was now able to offer the journeyman traveling through food and accommodation. At the general assembly in March 1928, journeyman travelers reported 70 overnight stays.

The house had to be financed from four sources: the foundation was a government home loan. In addition, there was the service provided by the state insurance company in Landshut. The central association in Cologne also gave its little edge, but only in the form of a loan; the association had to raise the rest with the help of donations. During the search work in the archive, a document came to light that is unlikely to be available in Vilsbiburg: It bears the personal signature of the then nuncio for Germany and later Pope Pius XII, Eugen Pacelli. He also gave 50 marks.

Because of the state home loan, the client was no longer free to design the plans. The government attached great importance to the construction of apartments, whereby the President had to look at his purpose, the club halls. Both purposes had to be combined accordingly.

As a result of National Socialism in 1933, club activities were initially banned (March to November) and then severely restricted. Due to the associated financial losses, the house could no longer be held. On December 4, 1937, the house was sold to the district craftsmen.
After the war ended, efforts to regain the house began. Above all, it was Prelate Dr. Anton Götz, who took the first steps. After tough, difficult and sometimes discouraging negotiations, the house was transferred back to the association on May 13, 1949 and the Kolping Family Vilsbiburg was again entered as the owner in the land register.
