    After several attempts, the responsible district council of the city of Duisburg decided in March 2014 to designate a small, until then unnamed street in the Ruhrort district, which served as a filming location for one of the thrillers, as Horst-Schimanski-Gasse. This is extraordinary not only because of the fact that a former crime scene commander receives such a tribute, but above all because public streets or squares are generally not named after fictional characters or living persons. The original proposal for a designation as Schimmi alley was rejected because it was not clear who owns the rights to the term "Schimmi" and a confusion with the former national footballer Horst Szymaniak would be possible.

    Schimanski location
    In »Friends«, Schimmi and Buddy Frieder Schoen take cover in front of Königsberg's watchers in the alley between Dammstraße 25/27 and Leinpfad at a steel door. Jean-Paul Belmondo also shot here for the movie "The Lion".
    In 2013, the request was made to name the alleged only Duisburger street without the name "Schimmi-Gasse", which a few weeks later, the cancellation of the city administration came, including. because of legal concerns. Another application to give her the name "Horst-Schimanski-Gasse" was approved in early 2014 and two street signs set up.

    As a cursing Horst Schimanski (Tatortkomissar) Götz George wrote in 1981 television history.
    His favorite word: "shit"
    A quote: "For me, the whole world is a big ass and the right buttocks are the Americans, yes, the left buttocks are the Russians and we are here in Europe, we are the asshole"
    A Duisburg without Horst Schimaski is like a currywurst without curry .....

    Schimmi just. Worth a visit for the name alone.

    Duisburg - Now the "Horst-Schimanski-Gasse" is also official. The city of Duisburg has affixed name tags on the famous "Tatort" street in the district of Ruhrort.The alley was already a common backdrop in the Shimanski "crime scene". The cult commissioner, played by Götz George (75), had been there once identified.In 2013, the idea came up to call the approximately 30-meter-long, yet nameless passage "Schimmi-Gasse". Not even house numbers have the passage. Nevertheless, the building law office made the film fans a dash through the bill.The concern: copyright infringement and likelihood of confusion with the ex-kicker Horst "Schimmi" Szymaniak. Citizens showed civil disobedience and knit a wool road sign for the harbor lane - with success.

    In his parade role as a prudish investigator Horst Schimanski, actor Götz George gained cult status.

    and if junk is around the corner on the Dreieckswiese, it's definitely worth it.
