Gravestone; application for a permit

Municipalities may stipulate in their cemetery statutes that gravestones must be approved.


Within the scope of their right to local self-government, municipalities may stipulate in their cemetery statutes that the erection of gravestones is subject to approval. There is no legal obligation to do so. The purpose of this is to review the existing requirements in a municipality for the design of gravestones before they are erected, particularly in the interests of stability and preservation of reverence.


Whether a permit is required and under what conditions it is granted is determined by the respective cemetery statutes. You can obtain more detailed information from your local authority.


  • The costs for the permit are determined by the respective cost statutes of the municipality.
