"In Berlin and Brandenburg there are two restricted areas (so-called ED-R) in which the operation of aircraft - including unmanned aerial vehicles - is prohibited.
- ED-R 4 comprises a circle with a radius of 2 NM (3.7 km) around the Helmholtz Center Berlin (Wannsee) for materials and energy (HZB)
- ED-R 146 comprises a circle with a radius of 3 NM (5.556 km) around the Bundestag (Reichstag building); - Circular around the Bundestag, at the corner of Tempelhofer Damm / intersection Ringbahnstraße
Exceptions to the prohibition in ED-R 4 and ED-R 146 can only be approved by the Federal Supervisory Authority for Air Traffic Control (BAF).
On January 28, 2016, the Federal Inspectorate for Air Traffic Control announced a general order for issuing flight permits in regards of flights with unmanned aerial vehicles by the flight restriction area ED-R 146 (Berlin) (NfL I-657-16). Thereafter, the permit to fly through the flight restriction area ED-R 146 with unmanned aerial vehicles is considered granted if certain conditions are met. For details, please refer to the following link: http://www.baf.bund.de/SharedDocs/Downloads/DE/Publikationen_BAF/NfL_1_657-16_EDRBerlin.html?nn=67088
For projects in these restricted areas, permission from the BAF may need to be obtained first.
Further information and the application procedure can be found on the website of the Federal Air Traffic Control Authority . "(quoted and translated after: LBV )
