Meal. This city project meal is currently triggering heated discussions!

Actually, the city wants meal only doing something good for their citizens with this action – but that backfires!

Food: Benches and tables are set up in the city

“Sit comfortably, chat, exchange ideas and get creative: The city terraces of the Be-MoVe project should make exactly that possible”: This is how the city of Essen advertises the project in a press release.

Colorful, buildable benches and tables have been in Essen-Holsterhausen since August 1st. These will still be there until the end of September.

Essen: Right turn blocked due to project

The Stadtterrassen are located in four parking lots on Gemarkenstraße (near house numbers 82, 102 and 110) and on Kahrstraße (near house number 82 in the direction of Rüttenscheid). In addition, the right turn from Holsterhauser Strasse to Kahrstrasse was blocked.


This is the city of Essen:

  • goes back to the Frauenstift Essen, founded before 850
  • 582,760 inhabitants, nine districts and 50 districts, fourth largest city in North Rhine-Westphalia
  • since 1958 seat of the newly founded diocese of Essen
  • Landmarks among others: Zeche Zollverein, Villa Hügel, Grugapark Essen
  • was European Capital of Culture in 2010 and European Green Capital in 2017
  • Mayor is Thomas Kufen (CDU)


The city terraces can be used flexibly and consist of, among other things, bench and table modules, a stage element, plant boxes or bicycle stands and a small bike service station.

Food: Action causes heated discussions

“Citizens are expressly and warmly invited to use the city terraces, be it to take a breather, to linger or to meet with neighbors or friends. They are freely accessible and may be used by everyone,” the press release continues.


More news from Essen:


It actually sounds good, doesn’t it? The action is hotly debated in a Holsterhausen Facebook group. “What nonsense,” writes one person. “Incomprehensible! Chaos at the intersection for such nonsense,” another Facebook user is stunned.


Here is a selection of other comments:

  • “What exactly are you supposed to do with all the noise and exhaust fumes? Eat, chat, play chess?”
  • “What’s that supposed to give when it’s done?”
  • “I’m curious who will voluntarily sit at the intersection.”
  • “People are getting stupider. Completely meaningless.”

The city of Essen certainly did not think so… (cf)
