Hollanders are not rare in geiselwind. Most of the time, however, it’s guests who only make a brief stopover in the steigerwald community on the highway. At the kirchweih-fruhschoppen, mayor ernst nickel received a hollander as a present, which should have its place in the village forever in the future.
This is a figure that michael ackermann from the engineering firm muller-maatsch from burghaslach presented to the youth center. The office was responsible for the planning of the selective village renewal in geiselwind, which is almost completed. The figure is supposed to represent a traveler, a hollander, of the kind that there are many in the town, especially in summer. On top of the pavilion, which was built near the town hall as part of the village renewal, it should have its place in the future, suggested engineer ackermann. The kitzingen artist gabriele gauer made the artwork.
"Thank you, he is in good hands with us", mayor nickel was pleased about the prasent. The hollander will be installed at the festival planned for next spring to mark the end of the village renewal project. The village renewal project, which began planning in the fall of 2008, is now almost complete. According to mayor nickel, only the promised grants from the authorities are still missing, then the accounts can be settled.
