Service description

In the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, major public events in the open air with more than 10,000 participants and an increased risk potential must be approved. Such an increased risk potential can result from the type of event, such as motorsport events, or if pyrotechnic objects are used. The location and condition of the event location are also relevant for such an assessment, such as on or near water surfaces or in the case of difficult escape options. A large number of people in a limited space or events with an increased potential for conflict are also seen as an increased risk potential.
If you are planning an event with a potentially increased risk potential, submit an informal, written application for approval. After your documents have been checked, you will receive written notification that your application has been approved.
