Some 38,000 people have protested Saturday in the German capital, Berlin, against the coronavirus restrictions. While most of the protest was peaceful, hundreds of protestors attempted to storm the Reichstag parliament building.

Members of Germany's far-right scene were also present, many of them visible with the flags of the German Empire and The Kingdom of Prussia. Both have become synonymous with the Reichsbürger movement that denies the legitimacy of the modern German state. Others waved placards affiliated with the far-right conspiracy theory QAnon.

Germany has so far not seen the wave of cases affecting some other countries of Europe, but its infection rate has been growing. New case numbers are reaching highs last seen in April.
