The long Pentecost weekend was also the first test for the nine-euro ticket – especially on Sylt. There, punks made for rather unusual pictures. From the police point of view, however, there were no major abnormalities.
Party atmosphere on Sylt. The long Pentecost weekend attracted numerous Tiurists to the island – also and above all because of the 9-euro ticket. Reports from punks partying in Westerland provided images that one is not otherwise used to from the island.
The police speak of “approx. 150 people who belong to the ‘punk scene’” and traveled to Sylt “to spend the Pentecost days there and to celebrate.” Of course, this also called the officials into action. “Among other things, there were mainly disturbances of all kinds, illegal camping and staying in the dunes, property damage and other offenses related to alcohol consumption,” the police wrote soberly and factually in their weekend mission report.
Most of the assignments “were carried out in Westerland, but there were also reasons for assignments in Kampen, Hörnum and Wenningstedt.”

But: According to the police, the weekend was not really exceptional. The island was “full, but the Whitsun holiday mood and operational stress was no different than in the years before the Corona period.”
