Demonstration Alert- G7 Leaders Summit

Jun 24, 2022

On 23 June 2022, the U.S. Consulate General in Munich issued a Demonstration Alert regarding the upcoming G7 Leaders’ Summit, which reads in part as follows: “The G7 Leaders’ Summit will take place from June 26-28, at Schloss Elmau near Garmisch-Partenkirchen. German authorities have implemented heightened security measures in the vicinity of the conference and in locations of expected rallies. Access areas around the meeting site will be restricted. Expect security checkpoints, road closures, and traffic disruptions in the vicinity. The Bavarian Police have information on their website (German only) about what to expect in terms of Routes between Munich city center and the airport, and the connection from Munich to Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Mittenwald may be particularly affected. Protests and demonstrations related to the G7 Summit are expected in both downtown Munich and areas near Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Although these are intended to be peaceful, even peaceful demonstrations can turn confrontational and possibly escalate to violence. We advise U.S. citizens to take common-sense precautions and avoid areas around protests and demonstrations.”
