The German noun 'Dorf' translates to 'village' in English. It refers to a small settlement or community that is typically located in rural areas. Dorf is often characterized by its close-knit community, with residents knowing each other well and often engaging in social activities together.

In Germany, the concept of a Dorf holds significant cultural and historical importance. Many traditional German villages have preserved their unique architectural styles and cultural traditions over centuries.
