Restaurant operation lockout period Exemption Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

In the event of a public need or special local conditions, the blocking period may generally be extended, shortened or lifted. For individual establishments, the blocking period may be shortened or cancelled for a limited period in the event of a public need or special local conditions; in this case, conditions may also be imposed.

It is recommended that you provide a brief written explanation of why you are requesting a curfew reduction. You submit these together with the request for a shortening of the blocking time.


The blocking time reduction can only be made on request. This can be done informally. If necessary, an application form is also available in your municipality or is available for download on the Internet.
