    Update Oct. 30, 2019 -- Additional road closures put in place for Crestview.

    To ensure the safety of residents and trick-or-treaters in the Crestview neighborhood, the garrison will add additional road closures for Halloween. Beginning Oct. 30, vehicles may only enter via Merkurstrasse and exit via Jupiterstrasse. On Oct. 31, to cut down on vehicle traffic, only vehicles driven by resident ID cardholders will be allowed entry beginning at 5:30 p.m. Roads and pedestrian gates will be fully reopened in Crestview and Aukamm beginning at 10 p.m.


    WIESBADEN, Germany -- Trick-or-treating in the Aukamm Housing Area is a draw for the resident ghouls and goblins as well as the host nation neighbors. In order to reduce traffic and ensure the safety of all trick-or-treaters, the U.S. Army Garrison Directorate of Emergency Services teamed up with the Polizei to block off streets and provide extra patrols. Here’s what to expect beginning at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 31 and running through trick-or-treating hours from 6 to 8 p.m.:

    • Rheinlandstrasse will be blocked from Westfalenstrasse to Bingertstrasse to all but emergency vehicle traffic (1 to 7 on map).
    • Westfalenstrasse will remain open through to Bayernstrasse and Bingertstrasse (1 to 3 and 5 on map)
    • Residents will have access with their military ID to the neighborhood through Westfalen and Schleswigstrasse (1 and 2 on map)
    • Traffic will be blocked from entering through Wurttembergstrasse from Bingerstrasse and directed onto Westfalenstrasse. (4 and 5 on map)
    • The gate at Hamburgstrasse will remain closed (6 on map)
    • Non-residents wishing to trick-or-treat in Aukamm will need to park outside of the neighborhood and walk
    • The shuttle bus will still follow its set route and times.

    Because the Crestview Housing Area does not have a major thoroughfare running through it, trick-or-treating traffic is usually lighter. Residents are still reminded to drive safely and follow other Halloween safety precautions.

    Trick-or-treating hours will run from 6 to 8 p.m. in all housing areas. NOTE: These are reduced hours from the originally announced time. Trick-or-treating is limited to the exterior of buildings, and trick-or-treaters should not enter stairwells in multi-family units.

    In the event parents and children are separated during trick-or-treating, meet-up points for lost children will be set up at the following locations:
    • Clay Kaserne – Newman Village bus stop
    • Aukamm – South entrance to the housing area (near 1 on map)
    • Crestview – Gazebo behind the DoDEA bus stop
    • Hainerberg – USO Pavilion
