A total of nineteen cities took part in the study. In addition to Bochum, where a “1000 meter promenade” like in Rotterdam is to be built in the future, also places like Dortmund, Essen, Munster and Dusseldorf. But cities outside of NRW were not spared either. Munich, Berlin and Frankfurt also became part of the experiment. But how exactly did it all work?

In order to put the “politeness” of the respective cities to the test, several residents of a respective city were interviewed on various topics, such as the website reported. Ultimately, these criteria determined whether a city and its inhabitants are polite or impolite:

  • Don’t let people through in public
  • Do not brake near pedestrians
  • noise in public
  • pay no attention to strangers
  • Watch videos in public
  • Using loudspeakers to make calls in public
  • Closed body language
  • Not respecting personal space
  • Rudeness towards the service staff
  • Don’t tip
  • Jump in queues
