Due to security measures, the area surrounding the hotel will be sealed off on Monday evening and throughout Tuesday until after Merkel’s departure. Only people with special passes will be permitted into the enclosed area.

There is a special relationship between members of the Federmann family who head the Dan Hotels Corp., of which the King David is the flagship, and a succession of German governments.

The Federmanns originate from Germany and two generations of the family have been honored for their contributions to Israel-Germany relations.
