Burial facilities; production and maintenance

The municipalities are obliged to establish and maintain the necessary burial facilities, in particular cemeteries and mortuary rooms.


Corpses and ashes of deceased persons (except for burials at sea) must always be buried in a cemetery. It is the responsibility of the municipalities to establish and maintain the necessary burial facilities for their residents. The granting of a burial space by the municipality requires that a right to use the grave be granted (for more information, see "Burial space; applying for a right of use" under "Related topics").

The details concerning the use of the burial facilities and the conduct of burials are regulated by the municipalities by statute or ordinance.
