The group has gathered to mark the 30th anniversary of the death of Rudolf Hess
Approximately 500 far-right extremists are staging a march in Berlin this afternoon to mark the 30th anniversary of the death of Nazi leader Rudolf Hess.
Counter-demonstrators are protesting nearby - however both groups are being kept apart by hundreds of heavily armed police.
It comes less than a week after a far-right demonstration turned violent in the USA.
Hess was a leading figure in Nazi Germany and received a life sentence at the Nuremburg trials for crimes against peace.
He died in Spandau Prison on August 17th 1987.
His death was ruled a suicide – however Nazi sympathisers have long claimed that he was killed and organise annual marches in his honour.
Police have told the neo-Nazis they can march – however they are not allowed to glorify Hess and are restricted to one banner for every 50 people in attendance.
Openly anti-Semitic chants would also see police intervening.
The neo-Nazis are allowed to demonstrate under Germany’s right to free speech and free assembly.
The weaponry carried by protestors in Charlottesville last weekend will not be tolerated.
