Text:
“Gut Heil!”
(Good health!)
“Mutig, Stark, Einig, Treu”
(Courageous, Strong, United, Faithful)
“Drum Heute und in Ewigkeit, ‘Gut heil der Turnerei’.”
(Now and forever, “Good wishes to gymnastics.”)

“Das Bier ist gut, das Herz ist frisch, die Seele froh und frei.”
(The beer is good, the heart is fresh, the soul happy and free.)

The central figure in this design is Friedrich Ludwig Jahn (1778-1852), or “Turnvater Jahn”, who is credited with responsibility for the rebirth of gymnastics in Germany during the early 19th century, and for development of gymnastics equipment such as the parallel bars and pommel horse.

Reproductions of this stein exist (circa 1970) with the same model number and central image, but with different side images and text.
