On the occasion of his first offical visit to Germany in September 2006, Pope Benedict XVI celebrated a mass in front of more than 250,000 pilgrims near the New Munich Trade Fair Center. In order to protect him against possible rainfall, the altar was roofed by a filigree membrane structure designed by Werner Sobek Design.
