Schlossgarten: Many empty seats during the live broadcast of the Kieler Woche opening

The opening event on the Kiel City Hall Square is actually always a very popular event. Thousands of spectators are usually in the Rathausplatz when the Kieler Woche opens at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. At least that’s how it was last time at the Kiel Week Opening 2019 on the Rathausplatz in Kiel. It is all the more surprising that there were so many empty seats in the concert and cinema area in the castle garden, despite a professional safety and hygiene concept and a sunny Saturday afternoon.
