On busy roads today, children hardly have the opportunity to play safely and independently outside. To raise awareness of this situation, two road sections were closed to traffic in July and October 2018. During the closing, the streets could be recaptured by children and their parents for a few hours to romp, to paint with chalk, to do a scooter course or just to linger in a deckchair.

In preparation of this closures, close cooperation with the restaurants and shops in the street was ensured. The measure was received positively from the restaurant and shop owners as well as from passers-by.
