"A double market town" Markt Bibart by Nemorino
Markt Bibart Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 10 photos
The first mention of Bibart in any document was in the year 816, but it has only been a “Markt” (= market) since the fourteenth century, when the emperor Karl IV (1316-1378) granted the town the privilege of holding regular markets.
Today, because of a quaint Bavarian peculiarity, the official name of Markt Bibart is actually “Markt Markt Bibart”, with the word Markt appearing twice.
There are 386 towns in Bavaria which bear the official (modern) designation of Markt, meaning that they have some slight degree of regional importance, but Markt Bibart is one of a select group of eighteen Bavarian towns (like nearby Markt Taschendorf) that have the word Markt twice in their name. 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.
All clear? If not, perhaps you can find some nice Bavarian person who can explain this to you.
