After the move of dressing up large cement blocks as presents in 2017 and again now, it comes as no surprised that some Christmas markets look like high security military bases.

But the country has become somewhat more creative in disguising its anti-terror measures.

In Ulm two tonne concrete birds are supposed to protect Christmas market visitors from terror attacks. One city officially commented that it was not about increasing security measures but about more “beautiful” security.

In Bautzen a similar approach with concrete Christmas trees was taken for safety purposes calling them a more “elegant” solution to concrete blocks.

The police in Dusseldorf are currently testing anti-terror standing tables. Their spokesperson called it a “creative” idea needing to be tested for its effectiveness.

    Stupid Europeans for allowing this mess, smart people are done with gift shopping by Dec 1st or before. Folks, stay out of crowds of all types incl weekends @ shopping malls, eat out when things are quiet (not busy). Colds and flu spread in winter crowds incl church concerts and holiday gatherings.
