Notice the Tired Tourists
Resting on the Steps?
In the case of the current German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, she lives at the same apartment she has occupied for many years (Kurpfergraben 6, 10117, Berlin Deutschland). The apartment sits directly across the street from the Pergamon Museum in Mitte. There are no blocked streets, no police vans, and no retinue of armed guards. There are just two policemen watching over the entire apartment building. That's it. It's really quite amazing that the German Chancellor has relatively little protection at her residence, especially given the thousands of people who pass her apartment everyday on the way to Museum Island.

What a Contrast to Ms. Merkel's House.
BTW: When you look at the name plate posted on her mailbox, it merely states, "Prof. Sauer." That's Ms. Merkel's husband, a Chemistry professor at the nearby Humboldt University.
