The police twittered in the evening that they wanted to check the area around Simon-Dach-Straße and Boxhagener Platz, "to make sure that the bars and restaurants are not too crowded". In addition the keyword: "Servicetweet for Partypeople".
On the warm evenings of the past days, many people had moved their celebrations to the fresh air and, despite the corona rules, some of them met in larger groups. In Gleisdreieckpark and in Görlitzer Park in Kreuzberg and on the Museum Island in Mitte, hundreds of people were still out and about at night.
In the three months of Corona restrictions since mid-March, the police punished about 5000 violations by reporting crimes and misdemeanors such as the prohibited opening of shops or restaurants and too little distance to other people.
