The municipality of Amsterdam decided against placing concrete block traffic barriers to make access more difficult to the Christmas market on the Museumplein. There is currently no reason to do so, the municipality said on Tuesday evening, AT5 reports.

The proposed measure was in response to a truck driving into a Christmas market in Berlin on Monday night, killing 12 people and injuring 48 others according to the Guardian.

In the last couple of years more Dutch have visited a Christmas market. Once again busloads of shoppers cross the border to visit a German 'Weihnachtsmarkt'. The fairs with festive stalls and glühwein stands in the Netherlands are also expected do good business.
