Outdoor fires; application for an exemption permit

If you wish to light an open fire (e.g. a campfire), special consideration must be given to the dangers posed by open fires. In particular, certain distances from combustible objects must be observed.


Special notes

Even if a fire is permitted, the following regulations should be observed:

  • Only untreated wood - no waste oils, used tires or plastics - may be used as fuel.
  • The fire is to be kept under constant supervision by a sufficient number of suitable persons in sufficient proximity according to the circumstances.
  • In case of strong wind, the fire must be extinguished.
  • When leaving, fire and embers must be extinguished.
  • Any remaining fuel - like other waste - must be taken away and disposed of properly.
