The night club "King Bar" is also part of Kerbl's business history. It one was a simple snack bar. Now it's leased to someone who made a night club out of the snack bar.

The light blue building is one of Kerbls restaurants. In 1939 Kerbl senior bought a farm on the same spot and started the business success of his family.

Now the most important business for Kerbl: the motorway restaurant in St. Pankraz "Nationalpark Rast".

The official text of the project: In the history and present-day of companies of the Kerbl family, the local development of transportation over the past few decades is linked in an exemplary way with social and economic changes in Europe. From a country guesthouse to a 24-hour service station with multinational patronage and staff, decade for decade, the geographical and economic catchment area of the company expanded in parallel to the construction of roads and the opening of the expressway.

A particular focal point of the project is on the company's history as a crossing-point for locals and people from the most diverse nationalities. Former and current employees, business partners and customers were invited to bring in their own material (photos, objects, stories) and thus shape the exhibition together with the group of artists. Within the project framework, the diverse narratives will be presented in the form of a walk-in installation on the grounds of the service station. Guided tours with those involved in the project into the nearby environs supplement the program.
