Cologne: controls at Aachener Weiher – Zülpicher Platz partially cleared


As announced, the public order office and the police intensified their controls in the Cologne green belt on Friday evening. Several dozen officials approached people with beer bottles at the Aachener Weiher and pointed out the alcohol ban there. The mood there remained peaceful until late in the evening, the meadows were significantly emptier than last weekend, when riots broke out on the sidelines of large illegal parties. There were no organized parties there this time.

At the other party hotspots it was always full until late in the evening. Stadtgarten, Uniwiese and Zülpicher Strasse were very busy around 11 p.m., but not overcrowded. A few hours later, Zülpicher Platz was so crowded that the public order office and police partially cleared the area.

The police and the public order office were increasingly patrolling all areas of focus. City administration and police had announced that they wanted to break up the gatherings early this weekend. But the humid heat may have kept many from going outside. That only changed noticeably with sunset. (get)
