Yes, I like it too. I want to create a big panorama of the interior, but it is so time consuming.

For having a party there you'd need fairly many friends to fill it. The hall is of the size of the cathedral of Aachen. (The Cologne Cathedral is about twice the size.) I think the dimensions show the power of industrialization. They needed 600 years to complete the Cologne Cathedral, but in the 1920ties they built this hall just to load meat into trucks.

The similarity of this hall to a giant church was possibly intended by the constructors, it even has a clock tower.
