No “palaces”: Merkel lives in an apartment in a Berlin five-story building


German Chancellor Angela Merkel lives in rather modest conditions. writes about it DW.

The publication learned not only the address, but also the living conditions of one of the most influential women politicians. It turned out that, against the background of Russian luxury from the FBK film about “Putin’s palace”, Merkel’s living conditions look austere.

She lives in Berlin in an apartment on the fourth floor in a five-story building at 6 Am Kupfergraben street. Anyone can come to the house. Although, according to the media, the house is guarded – a police outfit is on duty at the Chancellor’s entrance, but a bell with the name of her husband, Professor Jochim Sauer, hangs on the bell in front of the front door.

There are two tram lines in front of Merkel’s windows, and there are no obstacles on the sidewalk; and the police do not ask passers-by to cross to the other side.

Also, the media found out, Merkel has a dacha – and this is an ordinary rural house, which is located in the village of Hohenwalde near the Brandenburg town of Templin, where she grew up. The police are also present in the neighborhood there, but they appear on the street only when necessary.

According to the Rheinische Post newspaper, Merkel loves to treat guests with what she prepares herself, including from those grown in her own garden and in the beds. She herself plants potatoes and bakes pies.

We will remind, recently on YouTube were published materials of the investigation of Alexei Navalny and his team. In particular, it was reported about Putin’s work in Germany, his friends, as well as about the president’s ownership of a palace complex on the Black Sea coast near Gelendzhik. The video was released after Navalny’s arrest and caused a wide public outcry.

We add that Navalny was detained on January 17 at Sheremetyevo airport – he returned to the Russian Federation from Germany, where he underwent treatment after poisoning. The court sent the politician to jail for 30 days. On January 23 rallies were held in Russian cities in support of him.
