"Market Market Pocket-Village" Markt Taschendorf by Nemorino
Markt Taschendorf Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 7 photos
All you loyal readers of my Markt Bibart page (thanks again to both of you) will no doubt recall that there are 386 towns in Bavaria which bear the official (modern) designation of Markt (= market), meaning that they have some slight degree of regional importance.
Because of a quaint Bavarian peculiarity, eighteen of these towns now officially have the word Markt twice in their names. These are towns that were already called Markt in the Middle Ages and have since also acquired the modern designation of Markt as defined in Article 3 of the Municipal Code of the Free State of Bavaria.
That’s why the sign at the entrance to Markt Taschendorf reads “Markt Markt Taschendorf” meaning literally “Market Market Pocket-Village”.
For administrative purposes, ten nearby villages have been incorporated into Markt Taschendorf. One of these is Frankfurt, which is three km to the southwest. So when you enter Frankfurt, the sign says “Frankfurt” in large letters and then “Markt Markt Taschendorf” in smaller letters. (And below that in even smaller letters it says “Kreis Neustadt a.d. Aisch-Bad Windsheim”, for those who want to know which county it is in.)
Together, the eleven villages of the municipality of Markt Taschendorf had 1031 inhabitants at last count.
This fountain looks old, but it isn’t, because the writing on it reads Dorferneuerung (= Village Renewal)... more travel advice
