Kronenhalle Strong



In 1924 the Zumsteg’s took over the restaurant and it went directly off the chain.  Coming from meager beginnings herself Hulda knew how to get it done.  To spice up the decor she exchanged food for paintings from starving artists.  It didn’t hurt that they just happened to be Picasso, Chagall, Matisse, Miro, Klee and Braque.


Nowadays you have to pay, but the veal with mushroom sauce is definitely worth it.

I can’t remember if something like Guernica was on the wall or not, but that would have summed up it.  Ringing in my ears was Sartre’s analogy to Pablo’s anti-war painting.  If I want it to stop then I have to do something about it.
