Construction work in Munich: excavator driver finds old weapons and ammunition in the state parliament

During construction work for the new visitor foyer of the Bavarian state parliament, construction workers accidentally found old weapons and remains of ammunition. An excavator had broken through a concrete ceiling, under which there were ammunition boxes.

"As the Bavarian state parliament, we meet in a historic place, we have always been aware of that. But it is seldom as clear as it is today," said Ilse Aigner (CSU), President of the state parliament, on Wednesday in Munich. The fact that weapons and ammunition - presumably from the world wars - were found during the construction work "reminds us once again to take care of peace and democracy".

After the find, the police and clearing service immediately began to secure the find. At no time was there a danger to the operation of the state parliament. Aigner emphasized that she was curious to find out more about the age and origin of the finds "and above all how and why they were stored there".

The Bavarian State Parliament has been extensively renovated in many places for years. Among other things, the visitor foyer is currently being renovated, construction work is being carried out in the basement and on the glass roof of the plenary hall. The foyer should be ready for the state elections in autumn next year.
