Germany Travel Warning
Issued by US Department of State
Jan 29, 2002
From February 1 through February 3, 2002, the city of Munich will host the
annual "Conference on Security Policy." Munich officials expect a large
turnout of demonstrators. Bavarian police authorities have expressed
confidence that law and order will be maintained, and will implement
additional countermeasures for public safety. Traffic disruptions are
likely in the Munich city center, and the area for several blocks around the
Bayerischer Hof Hotel will be restricted. Americans in Munich should avoid
sites of demonstrations whenever possible, bearing in mind that
demonstrations in other European cities have sometimes turned violent.
U.S. citizens are advised to exercise caution and to monitor local media to
keep themselves informed regarding developments during this period.
