Filming on water and waterways generally needs to be approved.
Bodies of water and waterways in Berlin and Brandenburg are governed by different jurisdictions.
If you need a filming permit, please apply for it informally with the following information from the Directorate-General for Waterways and Shipping:
The approval authority for state waterways in Berlin is the Senate Department for Environment, Transport and Climate Protection
The approval authority for state waterways in Brandenburg is the State Office for Building and Traffic Department 2, Department 24 (LBV).
In Brandenburg, individual bodies of water are administered by the districts or cities.
Some individual bodies of water are also privately owned. The owner needs to be contacted for filming permits.
