Following the events in Paris, the City of Munich and local police have decided to upgrade security measures for the Chriskindlmarkt, the downtown Munich Christmas market. There is going to be more uniformed and plain clothes police. Thirteen video cameras will also follow the market which will be open from November 27 until January 8.

Many other measures have already been implemented, such as the surveillance of known and suspected potentially dangerous persons from the Islamist scene. In addition, relevant Internet forums and networks are being increasingly scanned for suspicious messages.

"There is no specific danger," police spokeswoman Elizabeth Matzinger told, "but an increased security situation". Meaning, the police are trying to prepare for all eventualities.
