Will the terrorist threats against Germany affect your decision to visit the Oktoberfest ?

''New threats from terrorist organization al-Qaeda have prompted Germany to raise its terror alert level, just prior to its federal elections on Sept. 27, CNN reports.''

I won't be back on the road till November when by contract in Indonesia ends but if I was going to travel to Germany in the near future then the terror alert would make no difference at all. Reply to this

The elections were yesterday. I dont think the terrorists managed to go through with their threats. Nothing in the news. I think the security and servalence was too heavy yesterday, for the terrorists to try anything.

We are being told by the police and authorities that there is no reason for panic. Reply to this
