Fascination callenberg castle

fascination callenberg castle

When hubertus hereditary prince of saxony-coburg and gotha starts talking about callenberg castle, he quickly gets into the black: "on the one hand, i'm fascinated by the history of the building – and then, of course, it's also very beautiful!" For him it is "one of the most beautiful forest castles of all", which is why he would be happy if it would (again) establish itself with many coburgers as a place that one likes to visit, where one likes to linger. "For example, in connection with a gentle winter walk through the callenberg forest!"

Prince hubertus, who at the beginning of the year took over the management of the ducal foundation administration from his father prince andreas and thus also took over responsibility for callenberg castle, does not like the term "museum. Instead, he describes callenberg castle as "a piece of family history", in which the ducal art collection see is. The german schutzenmuseum is also an important pillar, but above all prince hubertus wants to create the image of a "living callenberg" transport.

The castle was particularly lively on sunday, 9. December. This is the premiere of an event that is intended to provide a deliberate counterbalance to the often hectic and commercial pre-christmas period. At "christmas magic on callenberg families in particular are invited to come and enjoy a few hours of contemplation from 2 to 6 pm.

Annegret kramp-karrenbauer’s climate offensive

Annegret kramp-karrenbauer's climate offensive

On the weekend, as greta thunberg stands entombed in the hambach forest, annegret kramp-karrenbauer calls for climate protection "with optimism and openness, with a spirit of research and imagination".

A "national climate consensus" is needed, she demands in a detailed guest article in "welt am sonntag". Sustainable development should be anchored in the constitution as a state goal, as proposed by bavarian prime minister markus soder (CSU). The choice of kramp-karrenbauer’s co-author shows that his own faction is on board: CDU member of parliament andreas jung is currently tinkering with the union’s climate protection concept together with his counterpart from the CSU, georg nublein.

So after eight months as CDU chairwoman, kramp-karrenbauer goes on the climate offensive. When she took up her new post in december, she was clearly preoccupied with other issues: the legacy of angela merkel’s migration policy, with which many in her own party also have reservations, the reconciliation with her bavarian sister party, the CSU, the sharpening of the conservative profile.

New chance for coal-fired power plant in datteln

New chance for coal-fired power plant in datteln

The north rhine-westphalian state government has now created the prerequisites for this. On friday, the dusseldorf state chancellery gave the go-ahead for a state planning deviation procedure. Eon had built in a different place than the plan called for. Residents and environmentalists fear the emissions. The greens stressed that it remained uncertain whether datteln IV would ever come online. Further approvals must follow.

The project is also controversial within the red-green coalition. SPD does not want to let the highly efficient pile degenerate into a billion-dollar grave. The greens reject new coal-fired power plants because of the burden on the climate.

"Whether datteln IV will ever be connected to the grid is not yet certain," emphasized the chairman of the grunen state parliamentary group, reiner priggen, in a press release. "The whole process was flawed from the start and that’s why it has failed time and again in the courts.

Bamberg benefits from eu leader project

Bamberg benefits from eu leader project

What exactly the sense of the leader-projects of the european union is, is not to be said so simply at all. Both in the bamberg region and in the rest of the EU, the common ground may lie in the variety of projects that are intended to bring people closer to their surroundings and to their region with its many opportunities. In the bamberg region, for example, the leader projects range from fruit orchards and the marketing of regional products to a network of cycle paths and a swimming lake. And these are just a few examples.

If you want to know more, you should already be able to speak french. Because "leader", as anglo-saxon as it sounds, this is an abbreviation for the french name of the eu program "liaison entre actions de developpement de l’economie rurale", which translates as "linking actions for the development of the rural economy", may be. According to the official brochure of the local action group (LAG) for the bamberg region, the funds of the leader program are intended to support exemplary ideas and projects in the rural areas.

Local people can decide for themselves which projects they want to support, explains marion hartmann from the LAG. All leader grants are therefore tied to the formation of local action groups (lags), as was the case in the district of bamberg back in 1997/98. This LAG is led by district administrator gunther denzler, several mayors and representatives of various associations in the district. This committee mainly decides on the eligibility of a project such as the heinershof school farm near pommersfelden, which opens today, saturday. "This is one of our biggest projects so far", marion hartmann is looking forward.

Sv friesen refreshes its squad

Sv friesen refreshes its squad

The managers of SV friesen, which plays in the state league, seem to have come to terms with the fact that they narrowly missed out on promotion to the fubball bavarian league. At least there has been a lot of planning behind the scenes in the last few weeks. With success.

Board member josef geiger has convinced five new players to put their shoes on the "grun-weiben" in the future cords. The main sponsor placed great emphasis on youthful elan and regional identification. The newcomers are all very young and just starting out on their careers.

Andreas baier, who has been eligible to play since april, fits this profile exactly. The 18-year-old has now decided to continue playing for SV friesen in the coming season.
