The impending gas shortage, combined with calls to save energy, unsettles many people in Germany. When it comes to the Greek holiday regions, the answer is obvious: spend the winter in southern Europe. It is said that no German will have to freeze there.
The mayor of the port city of Chania on the Greek island of Crete, Panagiotis Simandirakis, was similarly inviting. "We invite every German who wants to come to us this winter to live here - away from the crises," he told the "Bild".
Crete is very suitable "to survive a crisis winter," said Simandirakis. There is no need for heating in the house here. No German will have to freeze in Greece, the mayor asserted.
