G7-summit at Elmau Castle


Security for head of states

Elmau Castle, June 2015: The head of states of the seven major economic nations are meeting for the G7-summit at the foot of the Alpes. The mountain panorama and a prestigious hotel view dominate the world press’s front pages and TV news for two days. A large staff of security personnel transforms the hotel into a high-security zone for these two days. In the background Teckentrup doors ensure that neither fire nor smoke can majorly damage the hotel which had opened in spring – even after the security personnel has been withdrawn.

Preparations began long before Obama and Merkel, Hollande, Cameron and further heads of states met for the G7-summit in 2015. Th venue had to be presentable and offer enough space and be particularly safe. Elmau Castle, opened in Krün in spring 2015 was selected: a new five-star tract, that modernly extends the traditional castle hotel southeast of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. During the summit meeting, the hotel and the surrounding area are a high security zone. But even when the troops of politicians, security staff and journalists have left the Alps (and security levels are back to normal), the five-star hotel has high security requirements.
