Buy lost property at auction Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

If neither the owner nor the finder is interested in the lost property, the municipality acquires ownership after 6 months and the lost property is released for auction.

The official announcement is made in the daily press and on the homepage for lost property.

Objects acquired at auction belong definitively to the acquirer.

If possible ownership rights to the item are asserted in the course of an auction, the lost property will be removed from the auction in order to clarify the ownership situation. After proof of ownership has been provided, the item will be handed over to the person entitled to ownership.

Payment at the auction can be made in cash or by EC card.
