On Saturday, thousands of people took to the streets for peaceful protests, organised by the Querdenken 711 (German for thinking outside the box) initiative group, which criticizes the government’s response to the pandemic.
At the same time, those in favour of the measures accused Querdenken supporters of backing right-wing extremist ideas.
On Sunday, the protests continued under the slogan "Thinking outside the box? No thanks!"
