As an exchange student on my own, this was basically my home. 

I worked in the marketing dept for ITT-Intermetall and after a post work nap, we usually headed downtown from Gundelfingen.

My group of friends hung out in the back corner booth.

It seats 10.

Schlappen had personal pizzas and that was pretty much what I ate.

It was the definition of a dive bar.

I loved it.

If walls could talk, they might reveal the secret why crowds of students have been visiting the "Schlappen" for decades. Then they would be able to tell endless stories and events that took place inside the historic building with a latrine from the 11th century, between antique furniture and antiquated theater posters. year in, year out. But walls are known to be mute. It is certainly not only the charm of the past years that clings to the slippers, but the pulsating life that takes place in the three guest rooms every day. Then when the swinging door opens and the guests pour into the pub. From morning until late at night, 365 days a year. Here students mainly serve students as an audience, with selected background music.
