The owner of the tavern, the Nothhaft brewery, cannot afford the required renovation.
"We would be hopelessly in debt," said the boss at BR-quer.
"The pub was a contact point for cyclists, bikers, walkers and guests from other parts of the district," says Maiwald.
The citizens don't want a new inn, they want the well-known village pub again.

The biggest construction sites of the renovation work are the kitchen, the electricity and the sanitary facilities.

One share is 500 euros.
