Security on the fairground “Bendplatz” Owing to the last terrorist attacks, the security concept for the fair will again be intensified. Municipality, police and event organizer Eurogress are in close cooperation as regards security measures. “We want to do everything possible, to guarantee secure operation of the funfair “Bend” and at the same time not miss the pleasure of this event,” says Kristina Wulf, managing director of the Eurogress Aachen. Also this time the proven security concept will be effective, however, with an increased number of personnel and more intense checks. The police will show stronger presence on the fairground and in the surroundings and also carry out checks during the night. At the three entrance gates to the “Bendplatz” as well as at the entrance stairs at the Henricistraße security service personnel commissioned by the Eurogress will carry out selective control measures and, if necessary, also check handbags, rucksacks, paper and plastic bags, etc. Also on the “Bendplatz” itself control measures have to be expected. The organizer therefore recommends all visitors to leave rucksacks, etc. at home. It will not be possible to use the small side entrance at Lindt & Sprüngli, which is not an official entrance for visitors anyway.

Here you find some useful information for your visit on the Bend.
