Barack Obama swigged beer and snacked on German sausage alongside Germany’s Boss Lady, Angela Merkel as he arrived in Bavaria.

The US President was greeted by an oompah band playing long wooden alphorns, while residents of the village of Krün wore traditional lederhosen as they filled the town square.

The President and Ms Merkel are meeting David Cameron as well as the leaders of France, Italy, Canada and Japan at Schloss Elmau, nestled in the Alps.

They are set to discuss climate change, Russia’s aggression in Ukraine, the rise of ISIS and British plans to prevent the repeat of a pandemic outbreak similar to the Ebola virus.

The area has been flooded by hundreds of anti-capitalist protesters, as well as 22,000 police brought from all around Germany to prevent them disrupting the meeting.

Mr Obama said: ‘This morning as we celebrate one of the strongest alliances the world has ever known, my message to the German people is simple: We are grateful for your friendship, for your leadership. We stand together as inseparable allies in Europe and around the world.’
