The German Embassy

Today I went to the German Embassy in Vienna for the first time. The German Embassy is located in the third district near the british and the french embassy.
The area looks like in a movie. Policemen everywhere, noting all cars passing by, or standing in telephone-box-like buildings (probably with safety glass) phoning with their headquarter. On every corner several Cameras monitored the street. The british embassy has a concrete wall around it, so it is looking they are awaiting an attack. (I wonder what will happen if I start taking pictures).
The german embassy was a bit more relaxed, only a high fence and a metal protector at the entrance of the building (a nice ugly washed-out-concrete building built in the glorious sixties). It also surprised me that I nearly immediately got a clerk that handled my request for a new passport.
