    These litlle park called "Knochenpark" and its located at the street Am alten Friedhof in the near of a school.
    And our local Alcoholics use these park as a meeting and drinking point all year long.
    So be aware in these area. Sometimes they grumble the people who are walking around.

    But if you have problems with these people, the local police station is just one minute away.
