Berlin - Filming at night
A permit is required for film shoots scheduled for the time between 10.00 p.m. and 6.00 a.m., if these will entail any kind of annoyance for the neighbours which is usually the case. The "Umweltschutzbehoerde" (Authorities for Environmental Protection) issues permits.
In some cases, a permit is also required at times other than the above mentioned, especially when there is considerable noise and air pollution. In case of doubt, consult the responsible authorities.
In Berlin, authorisation for the filmset in question will be issued by the authorities for environment of the district in which the shooting is to take place.
