8:10 pm – Relax at Carmish-Bartenkirssen the day before the summit
Saturday was very quiet in the center of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. A few locals and tourists were seated in cafes and ice cream parlors in the pedestrian zone, with most shops already closed in the afternoon. Police presence was high – in the historic center and on the outskirts of the city. Parks where police vehicles were parked were sometimes guarded by several police officers.
Officers from the Bavarian Police “Communications Team” also patrolled the pedestrian zone to answer questions. Many took advantage of the offer as the local bus association suspended bus services from Saturday (June 25) to Sunday (June 26) due to the G7 summit. A demonstration against the summit is scheduled for Sunday in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

6.50 pm – Class: A small town dedicated to the G7 summit
The Glyce G7 summit is a small town of about 200 inhabitants between Karmish-Bartenkirzen and Mittenwald. From here there is only one road to the convention site Schloss Elmau. Hundreds of police officers guard the road and control all access roads. Sandra Steinhauser, mayor of Glasgow and a member of the Crohn’s Municipal Council, looks at the summit with mixed feelings. “Many people are already wondering why this should happen here again after 2015,” Steinhauser said. In principle, however, the summit is very important in their view, and “they must meet somewhere.” But many in the city will wonder why there should be so many cops. “What the whole emergency service does with just the fuel, of course you wonder, especially this time.” Overall, he hopes it will be as peaceful as the first summit. Many families left class on the weekends, thanks to distance learning for school children. Most of the residents who stayed in the village quietly followed the events of the summit and the police action.

5:19 pm – Soder’s welcome tweet has no scales
Bavaria’s Prime Minister Marcus Soder has welcomed G7 leaders and government leaders to Bavaria in advance – but no one was seen in the accompanying photo: President Olaf Scholes (SPD). “Grüß Gott in Bavaria!” That said in the photo. In the picture are US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Italian Prime Minister Mario Troki, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida – six heads of state. Paradoxically, the host scols are not there. This was noticed by some Twitter users. “I only count to six,” one user wrote. Others noted that the president of all the people was missing. “He’s not a guest,” another objected. The summit is hosted by Germany.
