Blocking period; application for an extension, shortening or cancellation

The general closing time for restaurants in Bavaria begins at 5 am and ends at 6 am. It can be extended or lifted by municipal ordinances or in individual cases.



The municipalities may only deviate from the general closing time if this is justified by a public need or special local circumstances.
When deciding which closing time to set, the municipalities must always take into account the interests of the neighborhood - in particular their right to an undisturbed night's rest.


  • The fees are based on the Costs Act in conjunction with the Schedule of Costs.
