In the city of Göttingen, 8 suspected bomb sites have been found on the grounds of the Schützenplatz. These are to be rendered harmless on Saturday, September 25, 2023. This requires an evacuation in a 1,000-meter radius around the sites.
Unfortunately, the “campus apartments Göttingen” also fall within this radius. Therefore, no accommodation can be offered from Saturday, September 23, 2023 until probably September 24 in the evening. Guests are asked to look for other accommodations in advance, or to use the emergency accommodations offered by the city of Göttingen.
To ensure the safety of the population, an evacuation within a 1,000-meter radius is required for the operation. It is expected that everyone will have to leave the restricted area by 6:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, September 23. Around 10,000 residents and, for example, employees and hotel guests are affected. Only when the area has been completely cleared can the experts begin work on the construction sites. A possible return in the evening/night hours is expected.
We ask you to follow the instructions of the relief organizations, as well as the police. The sooner the area is evacuated, the sooner the defusing can begin and the sooner you can return to your apartments.
