Nevertheless, carrying weapons of any kind is illegal in Germany during

a utility knife is not primarily a weapon, it is a tool... like most
thing it _can_ be used as a weapon but still. A newspaper can be
turned into a fairly efficient club with a better reach than a swiss
army knife... should I be worried about carrying one in the street of
berlin ?
Clearly common sens will not get you anywhere without the cultural
context of that 'common sens'

While we're talking about common sense: If you were able to take an item
with you on a plane, it is likely you will be able to take it with you
when entering the conference center.

knifes and even guns are allowed in airplane.. in checked luggage.
and while we are on 'airport common sens'... does that mean that one
cannot bring any bottle of water inside the conference venue ?
