Residents of Dachau protested the visit of Beatrix von Storch from the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party on Sunday.
After holding a rally, demonstrators marched through the city, carrying anti-AfD banners and signs reading «Dachau is colourful.»
The town's mayor Florian Hartmann warned of the party's ties to the far-right. «The party dropped its mask in Chemnitz a couple of days ago and... Еще openly demonstrated whom it is close to, namely neo-Nazis and Pegida with their disgusting messages.»
Von Storch is expected to hold a speech in Adolf-Hoelzel-Haus in Dachau in support of Christoph Steier, who is running as AfD's candidate in the Bavarian state election on 14 October.
