A far-left demonstration, a visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping and an impatient Angela Merkel are all featured in The Local's pictorial review of the last seven days.

The week was marked by intermittent strikes by public servants demanding pay increases.

Large demonstrations took place in Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Dortmund and Frankfurt.

Far-left activists also held a demonstration to oppose "state repression" in Berlin over the weekend, setting fire to cars and clashing with police.

Chancellor Angela Merkel was busy over the week, attending a nuclear security summit in The Hague before heading back to Berlin to hold talks with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Tuesday was a day of jubilation in Munich after Bayern defeated Hertha Berlin, clinching the German league title. Celebrations began on the field and continued all night as players celebrated at a Berlin nightclub.
