Yeah, as said it is not a new relay, just lost the old one. But I would
like to add a new one, just finding a useful Germany hoster is not easy
to find.

I fixed it. I did not think about the OR-Port but did set:
# Use this IP for all outgoing connections
OutboundBindAddress [2001:4ba0:fff9:160:dead:beef:ca1f:1337]
# Use this IP for all outgoing connections
# OR Port IP
OutboundBindAddressOR [2001:4ba0:fff9:160:dead:beef:ca1f:1337]
# OR Port IP
# Exit IP
OutboundBindAddressExit [2001:4ba0:fff9:160:dead:beef:ca1f:1337]
# Exit IP

And for some reason I thought "Address" was the setting to do so, so I had:
Address [2001:4ba0:fff9:160:dead:beef:ca1f:1337]

But I removed that because it was bogus, so now it is:
Address tor.piratenpartei-nrw.de
now, which is what I meant to set.

So "err" or "warn" would be the choice for troubleshooting, I assume
this can be changed and a "systemctl reload tor.service" would be enough?

Thanks for the help again.
