An incredible 1500 associations in the district
Moderator uli noll ("radio eins") could only marvel: "in the city of kronach alone, there are 385 organizations and associations where you can get involved on a voluntary basis. There are an incredible 1500 in the circle. They offer a wide range of opportunities to get involved and experience creative moments."
