Cay Dobberke reports from CHARLOTTENBURG-WILMERSDORF on the following topics, among others:

  • The Christmas season begins – and so does the election campaign. This shows a bizarre argument about the start of the Christmas lights on Kurfürstendamm and Tauentzienstraße. On Tuesday, the chairman of the city working group, Klaus-Jürgen Meier, and Berlin’s governing mayor Franziska Giffey (SPD) pressed a button together at a ceremony on Joachimsthaler Platz and switched on the light. “It can hardly be more cheeky and outrageous!” raged the CDU parliamentary group in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf. Giffey’s performance “seems downright lewd.” You have to know that the Berlin Senate – unlike last year – will not grant a subsidy for the illumination of the boulevard this time because of the energy crisis. Although Senate leader Giffey has “not the slightest share” in the financing, “she plays as a great benefactor,” criticizes the BVV parliamentary group leader of the CDU, Stefan Häntsch. You can read more about this and reactions to the criticism in the newsletter, other topics this time include:
  • Why the Mercedes star on the Europa Center neither rotates nor lights up
  • Refugee businesswoman from Kyiv plays an important role in the Christmas market at the castle
  • Former Ku’damm hotel gives way to office building
  • Avian influenza: Zoo remains closed for the time being
  • Plans for Kulturquartier am Fasanenplatz – Senate to buy private property
  • The largest solar roof system in Berlin is being built on the exhibition grounds
  • Will Wilmersdorf receive three milieu protection areas?
