Service Description

Sundays and state-recognized public holidays are days of general rest, which may not be disturbed. If you wish to hold a dance event on a Sunday or public holiday, you will in many cases require a special permit.

There are various bans on dance events in the public holiday laws of the federal states, which may differ in content: There are restrictions for the time of local church services, but also those that affect certain Sundays and public holidays (such as Good Friday) as a whole. In addition, individual weekdays (such as Maundy Thursday and Holy Saturday) are also affected by the ban. In such cases, a special permit is required in order to be able to hold dance events.

In Schleswig-Holstein, dances are only prohibited on public holidays (Good Friday, Volkstrauertag, Totensonntag).
