The really big rush to the island didn’t materialize. The police speak of a normal situation on a Saturday night in summer.
Despite fears of a rush of day visitors with the 9-euro ticket, things remain quiet on Sylt. On Sunday morning, the police spoke of a normal operational situation, as you would have it on a Saturday night in summer.
There were about 20 missions, most of them unspectacular, such as drunks on the street, music too loud, people in the dunes.
There have been talks with the groups of punks, some of whom have been on Sylt for days, and they would behave within limits, said the spokesman. According to information from Saturday, this is about 50 to 80 people. According to a report in the “Hamburger Abendblatt”, an innkeeper was desperate, in front of whose bar the punks had camped and who therefore had hardly any guests.
In the past few days, there has been a lot of talk about Sylt on social media in the debate about the 9-euro ticket. Calls from left-wing groups online to “board” the island had also made the rounds.
