Flying structures; notification of erection and acceptance for use

The erection and use of flying constructions requiring a permit must be reported.



Flying structures may only be erected and put into use if an execution permit has been issued before they are erected or put into use for the first time.

Execution permits issued by other states of the Federal Republic of Germany are also valid in the Free State of Bavaria.


Flying structures requiring a permit must be reported to the building supervisory authority.

Special notes

Flying structures are exempt from notification if this is specifically noted in the inspection book or if the preparation of an execution permit is not required, these are:

  • flying structures up to 5 m in height, which are not intended to be entered by visitors,
  • flying structures with a height of up to 5 m, operated for children and having a speed of not more than 1 m/s,
  • stages that are flying structures, including canopies and other structures with a height of up to 5 m, a floor area of up to 100m2 and a floor height of up to 1.50 m,
  • ground-floor tents and accessible sales stands that are mobile structures, each with a floor area of up to 75m2,
  • inflatable playground equipment with a height of the accessible area of up to 5 m, or with covered areas where the distance to the exit does not exceed 3 m, or, if the roofing is structurally prevented from sinking, does not exceed 10 m,
