Dorfen

- It's Christmas time, just not in Dorfen.

Well, not just in Dorfen - other communities have also decided against a Santa Claus or Christmas market, although recently a lot has been possible again without gaps and masks.

But Dorfen is the second largest city in the district.

The fact that one is “only a medium-sized center” in terms of planning law, and that together with Taufkirchen, does not at all correspond to the self-image of some city patriots.


It is emphasized again and again that Dorfen must be preserved as a point of attraction for the surrounding area.

In the case of culture and nightlife, this calculation should work out again after Corona thanks to Jakobmayer and Tonwerk.

The retail sector has nothing from these evening visitors inside and outside of Dorfen City.

They come when the shops are closed.


So the city community has to create meeting points during the day where people in the old town feel at home.

The struggle of the small inner cities to survive as a shopping mile is also decided with markets and similar events.


For more than 40 years, the cultural working group has taken care of the blood circulation in the city center.

Since this summer at the latest, it has been foreseeable that the club will withdraw from this responsibility with an ever smaller and older group of active members.

By then at the latest, the Christmas market should have become a matter for the boss.


At the same time, the Dorfen town hall spoke of "Corona kickoff events" in a rather flowery manner.

It never came of that, in summer and autumn the corona events were even more unpredictable.

Neither were the months used to create a future for the Christmas market.

That could have been the Corona kickoff event that many are waiting for.
