  • in connection with an accommodation establishment, drinks and prepared food to house guests.

to house guests.

Permission can only be granted for a specific location. For example, the place where your permitted beer tent may be located is specified in the permit. Irrespective of the permission to operate a restaurant, you will generally require a permit to set up a tent/van and similar. If the event takes place indoors, building regulations may need to be observed.
