Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

After the death of the license holder of a restaurant business, it may be continued by the spouse, partner or underage heirs during their minority without their own license. The same applies to executors, estate administrators or executors of wills for a period of ten years after the inheritance. They must immediately notify the competent authority in writing if they wish to continue the restaurant business and notify the competent municipality of the start of the business.


Who should I contact?

To the responsible municipal, local or city administration (public order office).

Which documents are required?
  • Chamber of Industry and Commerce certificate or proof of a professional qualification in a relevant profession,
  • Death certificate of the license holder.

If the notification (in accordance with Section 14 of the Trade, Commerce and Industry Regulation Act) is made in person, the identity card or passport must be presented. If the notification is made by an authorized representative, a power of attorney must be presented.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

The permit expires if the business has not been operated for one year.

Legal basis
  • §§ Sections 8, 10 of the German Restaurant Act (GastG),
  • § 14 Industrial Code (GewO).
Applications / forms

Informal application.

What else should I know?

However, the person authorized to continue the business can also obtain a permit in accordance with § 2 GastG. This would come into consideration if he/she requires a permit anyway when adding rooms.

At the same time, a notification must be submitted in accordance with § 14 GewO.
