The City of Tübingen is prohibiting alcohol in public places between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. in the historic center. At night, alcohol can only be consumed in outdoor dining areas from restaurants. This regulation goes into effect starting June 2nd, and for now applies until July 4th. The following areas are affected: the Belthlestraße, the Kelternstraße, Am Stadtgraben and a part of the Wilhelmstraße, the Wilhelmstraße in direction Mühlstraße, the Mühlstraße, a part along the Gartenstraße and the Neckar to the Eberhardsbrücke and on both sides of the bridge, as well as on the path along the Neckar across the Klosterberg until City Hall, and the area Haaggasse and Vor dem Haagtor to the Beltherstraße. This was announced by the City of Tübingen on their website (keywords: Gemeinsam gegen Corona, Aktuell (together against corona, latest)). People who break this rule can receive a fine of up to 25.000 Euro. The city’s executive service and the police will check if people are abiding to the prohibition, the current contact regulations (maximum of ten people from up to three households) and the mask requirement in the pedestrian zone. One must be worn everywhere where a minimum distance of 1.5 meters is not possible. The reason for this decree are the events from the last weekend of May. Hundreds of, mostly young, people were partying and drinking alcohol in the Holzmarkt, without following corona regulations such as distance-keeping. Afterwards, they left their garbage and broken pieces of glass behind in front of the Stiftskirche.
