Since 1973 my hobby has been collecting beer steins, beer glasses and beer-mats.
In my leisure time I have been visiting flea markets, the antique shops hunting for new acquisitions. My friends know of my hobby, that is why they bring me steins for my birthdays and souvenirs from their journeys abroad. A lot of articles have been published on my collection in various newspapers and at one time I participated in a TV program as well.
My collection includes 4850 pieces from about 120 countries but this number is growing day by day. My house is totally full with steins. Some exhibitions were organized from my collection, the latest one was this year, which attracted quite a number of visitors.
