Some 400,000 Schläger fans danced in Hamburg’s St. Pauli district on Saturday in the first hit-and-run since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, according to organizers and police.

A spokesman said: “People were really starving and there was a lot going on from the start.” A motley convoy of 47 decorated trucks passed through St Pauly. Hits like “Michaela,” “Fiesta Mexicana,” and “He’s Got a Bright Red Rubber Boat” reverberated from the rolling discos. Thanks to the sunny weather with a temperature of 23 degrees, the mood was cheerful and upbeat. The roughly three-kilometer circular route went along the Helgolander Allee, past the Landungsbrücken, through St. Pauli Hafenstrasse and Pepermolenbeck to Reeperbahn.

Party in Heiligengeistfeld

4,500 schlager fans celebrated with singer Olaf Henning and his hit “Cowboy and Indian” at a sold-out warm-up party in Heiligengeistfeld on Friday evening. Bata Illic performed at Saturday night’s aftermove party.

The organizer makes a positive decision

His conclusion: “It was fantastic, impressive, emotional and thanks to all the fans, guests and participants, the right move.” Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe and other aid organizations provided first aid in 320 cases. It is mostly minor injuries, circulatory impairments and cuts. Police registered about 60 complaints – half of them after the fight – but spoke of an overall calm and peaceful atmosphere without any special incidents.
