hello friends I will stick to english for now but I hope to be spending more time in German section of TFD

I wanted to ask if wildcamping that is spending a night a wood/forest is legal.

in a tent of course with no damage to the environment, I myself Study "Invironmental Protection" at Uniwersytet Przyrodniczy in Wrocław and I appreciate the value of nature and the need to protect it.

Last time I was in Germany I met a very inspiring man a polyglot ( he could speak French, English, German, and some other I don;t remember but four in total)

he told me that he used to do a lot of wild camping in the past and that Germans are very good natured to that kind of activity, he said it allowed to sleep wherever you want

but we was kind of old 70-80 years old

and I wonder maybye it was allowed in the past but now it's diffrent ?

what is the oficial German Policy on wild camping ?

Just a little bit of information I gathered from that site:

There may be different rules in different 'Länder' (our federal states).

In general: If the area is privately owned, you need the permission of the owner. Many landowners or farmers don't mind people camping if they keep to normal environmental and safety rules (no rubbish, no open fires etc.);

if the site is publicly-held, you may only camp in designated places. Normally a policeman or forestry official will just shoo you away, unless you have left a lot of rubbish there. In that case you may have to pay a fine.
You'll probably have to pay large fines if you make an open fire in dangerous areas.

I guess you'll have to use your common sense. If you are far away from civilisation - which will be difficult in Germany - you won't have to ask anybody.

so it seems to be simmilar to Polish laws

exept that I don't imagine to pay a fine in euro Drool that would be a fortune w złotówkach (in polish currency) Anxious

we have to be extra careful I guess Think


last time me and my friend were in Bad Sarrow, very beautiful place Applause





Very big and interesting lake Drool


I truly learned the word "mittagessen"Whistle

mothers were shouting at their children on beach "wir mussen nach hause gehen zum ? mittagessen"

and I practised some German, really nice memories :)
