The former motor pool on federal police land? No alternative parking space is available. The jahnwiese? Too small, too few escape routes, problems with nature conservation. The former federal office for plant varieties behind the brose arena? Had to be developed, is too expensive. In the full session of the bamberger city council, public order officer ralf haupt showed in a detailed presentation where the plarrer uberall cannot take place. Ten locations for the bamberger volksfest, which has not been held since 2017, were examined – and all were declared unsuitable. Despite much praise for the clean conduct of the examination, some city council members were not satisfied with this.
"A folk festival is close to the castle. It is culture in action. We gave that up for economic interests", criticizes city councilor andreas triffo of the bamberger burgerblock (BBB) the decision to make the land at breitenau, where the plarrer took place for over 30 years, available to the company brose. If the city council really wants a public square in the world heritage city again, something will be found. A lot could be achieved with the motor pool with a little improvement. The development of the former sorting office is also feasible. "But we need the will."
