For the same reason that the fighter-pilots in a country that does not send their troops abroad (nor have a conflict in their own country) practice flying and not billiards, constantly.
and yes defence should practise what it is supposed to do like it always has
And that would be to practice warfare in a western city.
before going to Bosnia they trained in a Bosnia simulated village before going to Ireland they trained in a Ireland simulated village
Yes, and now that the German military want to practice their core business - defending their own country, they do the same thing, in the right setting.
,so why do they need to build a simulated village of a European city when there is no war in a European city ,,
....I hope I don't have to repeat myself once more on this one. But, just for clarity:
Because their core business is to defend their own country.
