The route of around 200 tractors first led to the Ministry of the Environment on Mercatorstrasse (full name: Ministry for Energy Transition, Agriculture, Environment and Rural Areas Schleswig-Holstein). An incendiary letter was handed over there. The tractor convoy then continued towards the city center, past the Hotel Atlantic and then to the Exerzierplatz. The tractors and trucks were parked here and a demonstration on foot to the central bus station (ZOB) and the Atlantic Hotel followed.
