Germany starts increased border checks and patrols to protect Euro2024 event

Worth knowing for all travelers:

From today, there may be checks at German borders due to the European Football Championship. According to the Federal Ministry of the Interior, the Federal Police will check travelers flexibly and depending on the situation. The main aim is to identify and stop violent criminals at an early stage. All travelers are asked to carry valid travel documents.

Checks will also be carried out at the borders with Denmark, France and the Benelux countries. Travelers from the Schengen area may also be checked in air traffic and at ports.

The temporary controls at all German internal Schengen borders have been announced at EU level until July 19 - a few days after the final match on July 14 in Berlin's Olympic Stadium.

The existing stationary controls at the borders with Poland, the Czech Republic and Switzerland were recently extended by six months until mid-December.
