In my post I forgot to mention that I am running PY under Debian Buster.
As suggested by Ned Deily I switched to PY 3.8.5
After some more research in the internet I found that the tcl/tk
libraries have automaticalle been installed during the Buster installation.
For automatically including tkinter during the PY installation one needs
also the 'tk-dev toolkit'.
With that I did not need the options
After the installation of PY 3.8.5 I can import tkinter.
Thank you very much for your replies.
