Street Art Activities

Would you like to present some street art on roads and in public spaces managed by the city, without it being classified as an event according to special regulations?

In that case, all you have to do is to apply for registration.

They do not charge an admission fee (a voluntary contribution is not considered to be an admission fee) and they do not endanger or violate public order.

  • Registration is issued for a maximum period of one year in advance; the activity may not exceed a period of three months.
  • An activity may be permitted and registered if it complies with the above rules and is not in conflict with the interests of the city or city district and public order.
